Acker Bilk

Acker Bilk appearing at this event

With a career spanning four decades, clarinettist Acker Bilk from Pensford in Somerset helped to popularise traditional jazz, introducing a whole generation to music that had previously been the preserve of the beatnik generation and the American New Orleans and Chicago jazz scenes. With a string of hits in the early 1960s, Acker famously topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic with his composition 'Stranger on the Shore'.
