Live Music with The Beard Conspiracy

The Beard Conspiracy are a three-piece ensemble based in the south east of England. Comprised of accordion, guitar, tuba and vocals, they play a dazzling array of fast paced tango, classical and klezmer with an eclectic blend of contemporary classics as you’ve never heard them before. They have been astounding audiences with their musical virtuosity and impeccable manners for the past two years and are the only band performing music from Shostakovich to Britney Spears on the same set! A great evening guaranteed.
