Tom “Spats” Langham and his Hot Fingers Trio take tunes from all eras and of all sources and give them the treatment, but what is more important, vital even, is that they do not lose the essence and they do it with soul and respect.

The trio, consists of Spats himself, who hails from Gloucestershire’s own New Orleans, Stow-on-the-Wold, on banjo and guitar with Malcolm Sked on bass and tuba. Multi-instrumentalist Danny Blyth completes the line-up.

They play everything from Fred Astaire to Sonny Terry and Brownie Magee with a couple of numbers from Broadway musicals thrown in. All the tunes are played beautifully with wit and aplomb and are held together by their unique style which is similar to that of the Bonzos, the Temperance Seven, Bob Kerr’s Whoopee Band and others, many of which Spats and other trio members have played with.

The three guys were joined for several songs by vocalist Emily Campbell who looked as good as she sounded.
