We have had Chris Barber’s support for the British Blues Exhibition for some time, based on calls and emails. Yet to see the great man face to face has always been an aim. At his show on 29th July 2015, in Dartford, Kent, we met Chris and he signed the exhibition banner.
Chris took an interest in one or two of the exhibits we had brought along, and can be seen above browsing a 1955 copy of Melody Maker. Meeting Chris and talking with him in person as he readied himself to go and play, will always be one of the best moments in the history of the British Blues Exhibition.
This is an enjoyable article on Chris.
