Celebrating more than 65 years as band-leader and in his 88th year, Chris takes to the road with the Chris Barber for a Europe-wide concert tour through 2018.
Inspired by the ‘King Oliver Creole Jazz Band’, Chris formed his first Band in 1949 at the age of nineteen and his since gone on to become not only Europe’s most successful and influential bandleaders, but a bona fide jazz legend. Chris Barber featured in the July 1978 Newport Jazz Festival at Ayresome Park, Middlesbrough and has been a regular visitor to the North East since then, engaging new generations of music lovers over the decades.
With his 10-piece band, featuring a 7-strong front line, Chris plays a selection of his favorite 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.
