The Big Chris Barber Band on Saturday 19th May 2018

Inspired by the ‘King Oliver Creole Jazz Band’, Chris formed his first Band in 1949 at the age of nineteen and has since gone on to become not only Europe’s most successful and influential bandleaders, but a bona fide jazz legend

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 in ‘Bourbon Street Parade’ to the early music of Duke Ellington and Sidney Bechet … before going back to ‘When the Saints’!

The Big Chris Barber Band combine all these ingredients into an exciting, and often moving, evening of world-class jazz.’

“When you can release an album that has artists such as Morrison, Waters, Clapton and Knopfler on it then you know you are held in high esteem in the music world. Of course, tying everything together is Barber’s own exemplary contributions on trombone” – The Telegraph
