The Earls of Newtown - Earles of Newtown is an acoustic eight piece multi generational band. Our music focus is around Dixieland and Swing music that was popular in the 1920′s. Our music styles range from original Jazz compositions to 20′s Swing Era standards such as Al Bowlly to Bob Wills and Hank Williams. Our music has the tendency to invoke dancing .
Virgil Shaw – Mr. Shaw gets his extroverted waltzes and rockers from a honky-tonk somewhere in the “wilderness of this world” that he sings about in his cracked voice. It’s a place where the mystic Americana of the Band meets Mr. Shaw’s own surreal tales and hard-luck images.” The New York Times
