Band Info

Sarah Spencer. Described as “one of the exciting, new, young breed of traditional players and the hottest tenor saxophonist on the Jazz scene today,” Sarah’s creed has always been to “play it Hot and Dirty”. Sarah started playing clarinet at the age of 8 and the tenor sax at 15, later taking up the baritone, alto and soprano saxophones. She started playing the British traditional jazz scene at 18; was the youngest visitor to play in Preservation Hall, New Orleans at 19; and formed the first of her own bands at 20. In 1989, Sarah Spencer’s Rue Conti Jazz Band was formed with the aim of playing New Orleans music “from Piron to Professor Longhair” and became one of Britain’s most popular bands. In 1993, Sarah moved to America. Since then, she has made numerous guest appearances around the world, recorded several compact discs, and appeared at festivals around the world, including playing at the Purcell Room of the Royal Festival Hall in London.
