Willie Barrow and The Fylde Coast Jazzmen

Here at Showtown we are all about stories. Capturing the memories and life experiences of performers to record for the future.

Imagine someone in 100 years from now watching one of these films - Will their lives be very different from ours? Will there be lots of new types of entertainment?

We recently had the privilege of filming this short digital story with jazz musician Willie Barrow at the magnificent Raikes Hall pub.

The Raikes Hall was a very fitting venue as it used to be the home of the Blackpool Jazz Club.

During his career, Willie had huge success with The Fylde Coast Jazzmen and is now a proud member of the Wyre Levy Stompers.

This story is a funny, fascinating and emotional account of his time with The Fylde Coast Jazzmen.
