The Littleton Community Center is again hosting the Sippican School Jazz Band on the front lawn. Last year’s concert was full of energy and lots of fun. The band is made up of 25 students ages 10 to 12 from a small public school in the seaside town of Marion, Mass. Despite their young ages, they perform at a very high level and audiences thoroughly enjoy their performances. Bring a chair and come listen to this talented group of musicians directed by Hannah Moore.
The Maple Leaf Seven, Vermont’s own traditional jazz band, provides “Dixieland” and classic swing throughout the northeast for jazz lovers and dancers. Maple Leaf Seven features traditional and contemporary interpretations of jazz standards on clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, bass and drums.
Maple Leaf Seven was founded in 1978 by jazz lovers in St. Johnsbury, VT. In the succeeding 39 years the band has played numerous concerts, weddings, parties and anniversary celebrations. Maple Leaf’s newest CD, “Sweet Jesus” features spirituals, hymns and gospel numbers performed in the band’s inimitable swinging style.
