Music hall artists for hire
Musical Inventors, Purveyors of Mirth, Almost Gentlemen!
Prof. Christopher Allcock & Dr. Michael Brown (Barrow Boys made good) will transport you back to a time before mobile phones and the X Factor; a time when gay meant happy and cool meant the weather.
They will educate you and cure your ills with a lethal injection of laughter and a good dose of singing. A laugh and a titter before the days of Facebook and Twitter.
Their extensive repertoire of traditional folk and Music Hall numbers includes:
Two Lovely Black Eyes
Pretty Polly Perkins
Don’t Dilly Dally
Old Brown Hat
Tavern In the Town
Why am I always the Bridesmaid?
Beside the Seaside
Bull & Bush
I live in Trafalgar Square

The Duo can be augmented with Double Bass, Violin etc (and even their own Polly Perkins) as required!
Just to say a massive thank you to Allcock and Brown for their wonderful performances on Saturday! I had amazing feedback and I’m very happy with everything they did. I will definitely use them again if I repeat this event.
