CONCERT: The Washboard Resonators

13th Sep 2024
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Enjoy the toe-tapping, washboard-playing spectacle of The Washboard Resonators when they return to Ilkley Manor House!

The Washboard Resonators are a duo that has a full vaudevillian stage show mixing 1920s and 30s blues, jazz, ragtime, and swing. They combine the influences of their favourite artists like Louis Armstrong, Fred Astaire, George Formby, The Washboard Rhythm Kings, and Blind Boy Fuller into something new. The band has played at major blues and jazz festivals, recorded four albums, an EP at Sun Studios in Memphis, been inducted into the national archive at The British Library, and is touring the UK twice a year to sold-out audiences.

‘Foot stomping anthems’ –
‘1920s & 30s blues and ragtime is in safe hands’ –
‘This duo packs more musical punch than most’ – The Syncopated Times
