This summer, Jon Ritchie's Swing Sensation once again join with hundreds of performers from all over Britain in the impressive military fortification of Fort George to take part in Historic Scotland’s largest event of 2012 The Celebration of the Centuries.

With demonstrations and re-enactors covering various periods of Scottish history from 2nd century Romans to World War II paratroopers the weekend is guaranteed to live up to its name.

Swing Sensation's contribution to the event will be in the World War II zone where they and The Swing Doctors, will have the crowds jumpin' and jivin' between sessions where you can explore the impressive displays of vehicles, weapons and demonstrations explaining more about the way of life "back home" during the war years.

That Swing Sensation are a group of Scottish musicians who play big band, swing, jazz and trad music.
From jazzy duets up to the 15 piece big band they perform live music at events, festivals and functions in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Ayr, Stirling and throughout central Scotland.
