About Chris Barber

Chris Barber

CHRIS BARBER. British jazz musician, best known as a bandleader and trombonist. As well as scoring a UK top twenty trad jazz hit, he helped the careers of many musicians, notably the blues singer Ottilie Patterson who was at one time his wife and vocalist Lonnie Donegan whose appearances with him triggered the skiffle craze of the mid-1950s and who had his first transatlantic hit ; "Rock Island Line" while with Chris Barber's band. His providing an audience for Donegan and later Alexis Korner makes him a significant figure in the British R&B and beat-boom of the 1960s.
