Zandra, Queen of Jazz
With just her sax and a suitcase, Zandra Mitchell joined a jazz band and toured the world.
Born in Phibsborough, Dublin in 1903, she was Ireland’s first female saxophonist.While the twenties roared she found her way through Europe to Berlin. The dictators rose; the books burned; the bombs dropped…and Zandra played her sax.
