Tipitina will bring their own unique take on the blues, barrelhouse boogie and gospel to the Platform in Morecambe on Saturday, February 23.

The name Tipitina comes from the title of a piece by the late Professor Longhair and it is from the Prof and his students – Fats Domino, Dr John, Allen Toussaint et al – that they draw much of their inspiration.

Following on from their acclaimed debut album ‘I Wish I Was In New Orleans’, Tipitina are now on a roll with ‘Taking Care of Business’, recorded at 2011’s Birmingham International Jazz and Blues Festival supported by Colmore BID.

Already the house full signs are going up at Ronnie Scott’s and elsewhere, encouraged by uniformly enthusiastic album reviews.

The concert will start at 8pm. Tickets cost £14 adults, £12 concessions and are available from the Visitor Information Centres at the Platform, Morecambe and the Storey in Lancaster. You can also buy tickets over the phone on 01524 582803.
