Dixieland Plus
Founded in the 1990's by Ancaster pianist Bill Middleton, this nine-piece Burlington band is dedicated to recreating the happy, free-flowing style of music that originated in New Orleans, Louisiana in the early 20th century. Bill died in 2011, but the band continues to commemorate his legacy. Many of the arrangements in the Dixieland Plus library were written by Middleton. Some well-known Dixieland tunes include: Bill Bailey, Beale Street Blues and Tin Roof Blues, all of which the band plays.
