The Early Years
Formed in mid 2015, Sassafras has quickly established a reputation as one of Perth's premier gypsy jazz groups. Perhaps best known for their work with the quintet version of the group ("Sassafras" - featuring vocalist Jessie Gordon), the four instrumentalists have also been steadily developing their sound as a tight-knit and energetic instrumental group: Sassafras Quartet. Joining Sassafras Quartet for this special occasion, is talented Irish violinist Charlie McCarthy. A former resident of Perth, Charlie formed the gypsy jazz group "Belleville" (with guitarist Lachlan Gear) which performed at numerous venues in and around Perth over a number of years. Bassist Pete Jeavons joined the group later too, so this concert will be a fitting musical reunion for Charlie, Lachlan and Pete. 7pm Wed
