Live Music – Featured Artist

With a love of small group classic swing from the 1930’s & 40’s, clarinetist Scott Poll and the “Pollcats” have always aspired to recreate the popular musical sounds from this bygone era.  Much of their repertoire of swing standards are original arrangements and are drawn from the songbooks of the “Golden Age” of American music.  Scott formed his first “Pollcat” jazz combo in 1993 while living & freelancing in Calgary Alberta.  Moving to Ottawa a year later, the group has been a fixture on the Ottawa music scene ever since.
