Universally popular last time, The Washboard Resonators return to Blue Sky!

Fun, classy and quirky, The Washboard Resonators hail from Leeds in England and can be described as sounding and looking like ‘a ragtime street band meets a Hollywood musical on a theatre stage somewhere in around 1932’.

On stage, you can expect a varied and entertaining show with upbeat songs, harmonies, tap dancing and an array of old instruments, including; washboard, resonator guitars, banjo, ukulele, snare drum, suitcase bass drum, spoons and our very own invention—the kazoosaphone.

The duo’s material comprises of both original and carefully arranged traditional numbers by their favourite artists. These artists include; Blind Boy Fuller, Louis Armstrong, Fred Astaire, Robert Johnson, Lonnie Donnegan, Tampa Red and The Washboard Rhythm Kings.
