London’s Dance Halls, 1947 – Shaughan takes us there

” a fantastic bobby-soxed toe…”

Shaughan’s discovery this. It’s a piece that is utterly of its time – 1947 – and its place – London. Performed to perfection by Shaughan.

Some of the gems:

“represents some symbolic ritual understanding between them…they are in fact jivers who cannot stop jiving”

“a jacket almost to his knees”

“the head cats are at it, the jive is on, they’re in a groove”

“A zoot suit and a swing skirt”
