Ethan Lipton & his Orchestra
Grande Halle de la Villette,
Ethan Lipton & his Orchestra are a delight of old-fashioned charm, mixing made-in-New Orleans jazzy sounds and traditional American folk music, all within a soul setting that’s both mighty and dancey. Songwriter Lipton is full of class and hilariously funny, and he’s constantly leading his big band on a journey to imaginary lands full of fanciful fantasy, reeling everyone in. Think dimly lit speakeasies of the South, with a dash of New York jazz clubs.
