Discover the hot music of the 1930’s with Dundee & Angus College’s first vintage music event!
Scottish Jazz Awards finalists Rose Room have become one of Scotland’s leading ensembles influenced by the gypsy jazz genre. Sharing a love of swing music and the style of the great Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, their vigorous and vivacious performances to go down a storm with any audience as their 1930s Hot Club standards and self-penned originals are always served up with great energy and panache.
Based in Glasgow, the quartet features award-winning virtuoso violinist and vocalist Seonaid Aitken (who recently orchestrated the music for the BBC/Richard Curtis film ‘Esio Trot’), guitar maker to the stars Jimmy Moon on double bass, and Danny Kyle Award-winners ‘Swing Guitars’ Tam Gallagher and Tom Watson on rhythm and lead guitars respectively.
Joining them will be The Saguaro Sisters direct from Los Angeles!
Shona, Katrona and Karona sing vintage jazz and western swing tunes in beautiful three part harmony.

They are rapidly establishing themselves as leading members of the vintage lifestyle movement in Los Angeles.
