The toast of various variety shows, open mics, park benches, and street corners, Bryce Edwards, musician and cabaret artist reviving traditional jazz and popular music from the early 20th century brings his show Frivolity Hour to Don’t Tell Mama on January 21 @ 7 pm. A vaudevillian troubadour, Edwards is a unique vocalist that takes equal cues from the crooners and soft singers of the late 1920s and early 30s and from the bombastic voices of the acoustic phonograph era, as well as an instrumentalist who plays banjo, ukulele, tenor guitar, and mandolin in the modernistic jazz idiom. Leading a hot combination featuring the talents of extraordinary jazzman Scott Ricketts (cornet) and Grammy award winner Conal Fowkes (piano, upright bass), Edwards revels in the idiosyncrasies and eccentricities of the sweet and raucous music of the 1910s, 20s, and 30s.
