Jazz Legend Chris Barber in Bonn

17 January sees the return of a Jazz/Blues legend to Bonn.  Chris Barber brought skiffle to Britain via his one time band member Lonnie Donegan, but is most famous for introducing Europe to the Blues by booking  legendary performers such as Big Bill Broonzy, Muddy Waters, Sister Rosette Tharpe , Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee.

If you want to know more about Barber’s fascinating background then check out the in-depth INTERVIEW that John Harrison did with Chris for 3songsbonn.com.  The term ‘unsung Hero’ is often bandied around carelessly, but Chris Barber is such a man – oh, and as my REVIEW from his show a couple of year’s ago proves, he still makes great music!  The concert is at Bad Godesberg Stadthalle so don’t miss it!
