Information

The Barber, Bilk and Ballstars play music by Chris Barber, Acker Bilk and Kenny Ball plus Terry Lightfoot, Alex Welsh, Humphrey Lyttelton and more!

Before The Beatles Britain was Trad mad and this afternoon’s concert celebrates the music of the late ’50s and early ’60s when the sound of early jazz was adapted to make a uniquely British style.
