He is part of the Team at the Keyboard Cavalcade festivals and his presentation is always entertaining. Touring with a very unique setup Chris uses a customised combination to produce a great sound.

DAVID HARRILD From the age of 8 David slowly developed a passion for music with every open opportunity trying his hand on the school piano. After 1 year’s tuition, he decided that he would throw away the teaching books and play by ear. He wont mind us saying some years have passed and David’s “by ear” ability has become his trade mark as he developed in to true musician and performer we know today. Sit back and marvel at the arrangements and sounds that David produces from his multi-keyboard set up. Christmas is coming!

Tony has become a firm favourite pole topper on the circuit and has used the same instrument in the Yamaha HX-1 for many many years, producing a sound which has become his own. Always popular we’ll be in for a great afternoon with this star performer.
