The FB Pocket Orchestra

Sun 12th May 2019 7:30PM
Neston Town Hall, Neston, CH64 9TR
Blues, Ragtime, Hot Jazz - songs and dances from long ago.

Working backwards from the 1930s, the FB Pocket Orchestra explores repertoire that formed the embryo of what is now known as popular music. The members originally began playing together simply as an exercise in exploring heritage repertoire - taking on a few informal performances and recording dates as schedules allowed.

The aims of the orchestra are to present a contemporary slant on popular acoustic music from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Much of the inherent beauty of this repertoire lies in the subtle interaction of more traditional instruments, so our instrumental scope now includes banjo, cornet, accordion, tuba, clarinet. The music has significant musical relevance to a present-day audience and celebrates some of the key attributes of the past.

To put it succinctly – the FB Pocket Orchestra hope to entertain audiences with music from a time when life was much simpler!
