The very popular FB Pocket Orchestra takes its listeners back to the hot jazz, blues, ragtime & popular dances of the 1920/30s and earlier.
The members originally began playing together in various FB Music & Media Projects and officially began playing as The FB Pocket Orchestra in 2012.
“Atmospheric, yet vibrant, this charming collection of songs will make you wish you had been born some 100 years ago. The style, glamour and ‘fabulousness’ of this era is captured beautifully on the album.” Claire Anderson Jazz

Chris was Acoustic Guitarist of the year in 1997 and his many rave reviews include – ‘…the best bluegrass guitarist in the country’ – The Independent.
