Big Bertha – double bass

Big Bertha, my ‘rescued’ double bass, moved in with me in 1979. Bradford’s live music scene in the 70’s and 80’s was dynamic, full of highly skilled amateur musicians who became good friends. Playing rock, blues and jazz in Queens Hall, The Edwardian, Royal Standard, Oakleigh, Park, Bavaria, Gatsby, and later in Saltaire Festival, Midland Hotel, Bradford City Centre – the strong DIY culture of our city. Still playing, can’t wait to get going again post-Covid.
