The Dixie Rovers are a group of 7 local musicians who enjoy playing traditional Dixieland jazz. In existence for only 2 full years, they have performed at such events as the Antigonish Art Fair, Highland Games Street Fair, Olde Stumpe Frolic, and at the Antigonish Farmer’s Market.
Based in Antigonish, but with some members also hailing from Pictou County, this year the Rovers will be playing several local events including at the Pictou Lobster Carnival, Trenton Antique Car Show, and for New Glasgow’s pre-Canada Day celebrations on the riverfront on June 30. Our 7-piece group includes trumpet, clarinet, tenor sax, trombone, tuba, tenor banjo, and percussion.
Come on out and listen to some fine traditional Dixieland jazz with the Dixie Rovers! Performance begins at 9:30am.
