HOT Fingers presents an eclectic mix of tunes from the 1920s, 30s and 40s with their new show touring to Cerne Abbas and Broadoak near Bridport.

Artsreach favourites Hot Fingers, led by the inimitable ‘Spats’ Langham, are heading back to Dorset for a four night tour.

Their brand new show, The Banned Played On, is the exciting follow up to their highly acclaimed Acoustic Blues show, which packed venues when the band last visited Dorset in 2016.

Hot Fingers frontman Tom ‘Spats’ Langham has performed with such notables as The Pasadena Roof Orchestra, The Temperance Seven and Acker Bilk, while sousaphone player Malcolm Sked has toured the world with Bob Kerr’s Whoopee Band and The Charleston Chasers. Together with stunning vocalist Emily Campbell and multi-instrumentalist Danny Blyth, the band regularly fill jazz clubs, halls and theatres up and down the Country.

Now back on the road with a brand new show, Hot Fingers present an eclectic mix of tunes from the 1920s, 30s and 40s which were deemed unsuitable for the public by the various authorities and governments of the time.

Whether the censorship was due to political or social reasons or, just plain bad taste, Hot Fingers share all the stories; from Bing Crosby and Ella Fitzgerald, to Fats Waller and George Formby, all will be played in the inimitable Hot Fingers styles of hot jazz, low down blues and popular song. Featuring guitar, double bass, sousaphone, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, clarinet and tuba, combined with the sublime vocals of Emily Campbell, expect an outstanding evening of entertainment
