Travelling by Tuba - Farewell Tour

Event information

This multi-instrument extravaganza by one of the UK's most successful classical music duos mixes wonderful musicianship, sheer silliness and cheeky audience rapport in a set packed full of quirky musical gems ranging from classical to jazz. Exhilarating and utterly irresistible. After 26 years on the road, Travelling by Tuba presents a farewell tour extravaganza featuring instruments from around the world - from the tuba and dragon-headed Chinese priest trumpet to the ocarina, the alpen-horn and Roman cornu - charming chat and humourous 'infotainment'. The duo's wonderful rapport, both with each other and with their audiences, together with their extraordinary versatility, virtuosity and physical prowess, adds up to a visual and artistic feast that is exhilarating and utterly irresistible. Through story-telling, pantomime, jokes and sheer silliness, Chris Cranham and Stuart Death prove that serious music-making goes hand in hand with fun and laughter, something they've got down to a fine art. Travelling by Tuba performs in excess of 200 concerts a year, playing venues such as the Barbican Centre, St. David's Hall and the Bridgewater Hall, and have appeared regularly on BBC Radio and Channel 4. ______________________________________________________________________ 'Something special… abundantly blessed with the gift of communication.'
