Formed in 2016, Annie and the Fur Trappers has evolved from a conglomerate of jazz musicians to a solid ensemble dedicated to keeping the music of the 1920s and 30s alive today. Drawing on the history of St. Louis and New Orleans jazz, Annie and the Fur Trappers plays delta blues, traditional jazz, dixieland, and swing favorites. Founded by Annie Linders (cornet, vocals), its members include Bryan Cool (banjo), Jon Weiss (tuba), Rudy Torrini (clarinet), Joe Sparks (trombone), Yuki Aono (alto saxophone), Christopher Parrish (piano), Adam Andrews (washboard), and Christian Frommelt (piano).
