About this show

A rare opportunity to see two legends of British jazz, in one great concert. Chris Barber celebrates his 64th year as a band leader in 2013. With his 10-piece band, featuring a 7-strong front line, Chris plays a selection of his favourite music: from his roots in New Orleans style to the early music of Ellington and Sidney Bechet, Bob Crosby and blues by Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee. Acker Bilk first gained worldwide fame with Stranger On The Shore in 1962 - the first simultaneous number 1 hit in UK and USA. Since that time Acker and his Paramount Jazz Band have firmly established themselves as one of the best loved British jazz bands of all time.
