A message from the Jazz Repertory Company:
As we’ve had to change the date for this event three times, The Jazz Repertory Company would like to thank you for your patience by enticing you back to the Cadogan Hall with a ticket price for all seats at just twenty quid. We look forward to seeing you on the 21 March for some great live jazz.
The Barber Bilk and Ball Stars 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 our concert celebrates the music of the late ’50s and early ’60s when the sound of Dixieland was adapted in a uniquely British way to create a happy, upbeat swinging style that will be a perfect way of celebrating coming out of a long Covid winter.
The seven-piece band led by trombonist Ian Bateman features a group of musicians who worked extensively with the big stars of the Trad era and continue to keep the music alive with their superb playing and sheer love of the music.
