Synopsis

Chris Barber OBE (87) is one of the last British Jazz legends around and an icon of traditional jazz in the United Kingdom.

For nearly 70 years he has been active in the music scene: promoting, recording and releasing music and touring with his band. The BIG Chris Barber Band (10-piece!), inspired by the great Ken Colyer Jazz Men, features everything from New Orleans to blues to late 20's Ellington, played with extraordinary panache and skill. On this special night, you will hear songs from that age and Chris' favourites like "Bourbon Street Parade", "Jubilee Stomp", "Petite Fleur", “Ice Cream”, "When the Saints Go Marching In" and many more. They stand out as one of the finest, if not the finest band of its kind anywhere in the world. You can count on an exciting evening of high quality jazz and blues which will appeal in equal measure to the aficionado and the newcomer.
