Dom Pipkin appears regularly at the Green Note and is widely considered one of Europe’s finest exponents of true New Orleans RnB piano. He’s had Radio 2 and Jazz FM specials around his music, and played the piano all over the world. He’s been playing the music of Professor Longhair for decades, and on this the occasion of Longhair or “Fess”s 100th Birthday he dedicates an evening to the man’s extraordinary music and some of the New Orleans artists he influenced.

Henry Roeland “Roy” Byrd (December 19, 1918 – January 30, 1980), better known as Professor Longhair was a New Orleans blues singer and pianist. His piano style has been described as “instantly recognizable, combining rumba, mambo, and calypso.”
The music journalist Tony Russell wrote that “The vivacious rhumba-rhythmed piano blues and choked singing typical of Fess were too weird to sell millions of records; he had to be content with siring musical offspring who were simple enough to manage that, like Fats Domino or Huey “Piano” Smith. But he is also acknowledged as a father figure by subtler players like Allen Toussaint and Dr. John.”
