GUEST,jim bainbridge Obit: Chris Barber RIP (1930-2021) (20) RE: Obit: Chris Barber RIP (1930-2021) 03 Mar 21


Chris Barber was the one to give Lonnie Donegan some musical prominence, making him very aware of the blues and country music at the root of skiffle.
    A high proportion of early folk revivalist singers came to 'folk' via the skiffle route and would say so, leading to the wider folk revival.
    It seems to me then that Chris Barber was at the very start of the folk revival & should be awarded a Gold Medal from the EFDSS.
