The Walden School is bringing New Orleans to New Hampshire! Aurora Nealand and The Royal Roses will be joining us again for a night of jazz under the stars at 7:30 PM on Friday, July 7th, behind the Fountain Arts Building (weather permitting), where will be lawn seating available.
The Royal Roses grew out of the rich resurgence that traditional jazz is seeing in New Orleans amongst the younger generation of musicians today. Saxophonist/vocalist Aurora Nealand has been playing in various groups in New Orleans since 2005, and the Royal Roses, founded in 2010, is her first venture as a bandleader. The Royal Roses draw their repertoire heavily from Sidney Bechet, Django Reinhart and traditional jazz of New Orleans. Comprised of some of the finest young players on the New Orleans music scene today, the Royal Roses are seeking to breath new energy, arrangements and compositions into this genre of music while exploring and learning from its rich history and tradition. They‘ve performed in New Orleans at the French Quarter Festival, Satchmo Festival and Preservation Hall, as well as in NYC at Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival. Their albums include 2001’s “A Tribute to Sydney Bechet: Live at Preservation Hall,” 2014’s “The Lookback Transmission,” and 2016’s “Comeback Children.”
