Those marvellous inventors in music and purveyors of mirth, Allcock and Brown, are a handsome Victorian music hall duo with more than a lace handkerchief up their sleeves.
Comic ditties, monologues and sing-alongs of days past are performed on piano accordion (Mike Ruff) and Anglo concertina (Chris Sadler).
Available for public gatherings, private parties,
and everything in between!
