George Webb’s Dixielanders the renowned traditional jazz band, whose regular sessions at the Red Barn pub in Barnehurst helped to kick-start the post-war trad boom. This 2010 video was made at the funeral and wake of Webb himself and includes a brief clip of him playing in 2006 with the last incarnation of his Dixielanders. Original band members Eddie Harvey, Owen Bryce (born 1920) and Wally Fawkes all attended the funeral and trumpeter Bryce can be heard soloing at the wake, from about five minutes into the film.
