BABS Live!, the live online concert series from the British Association of Barbershop Singers, will return at 8pm on Sunday 30th August. Hosted by James Gower-Smith and Chris Langworthy of Tagline, the show will be streamed live on the BABS Facebook and Youtube channels.

We’ll be celebrating all things related to Harmony College, BABS’ annual education weekend and chatting to guest educators who have taught at Harmony College in recent years, including Rhiannon Owens-Hall, Steve Scott and Vocal Spectrum, and Jordan Travis, who was originally scheduled to attend our August event this year.

The next BABS Live! is less than two weeks away, and we’re really excited to announce some of the acts that will be featured on the show. They’ll be appearing alongside our interview guests Vocal Spectrum, Steve Scott, Jordan Travis and one of the true icons of British Barbershop, Rhiannon Owens-Hall! Unfortunately Sally McLean isn’t going to be able to join us, but we very much look forward to talking to her on a future edition of BABS Live. 

Now, these guests will be joined by a plethora of acts from across the barbershop landscape, including:

  • From BABS: Sound Hypothesis, Fifth Element and Trailblazers
  • From LABBS: Sound Central, Avalon and the Cheshire Chord Company
  • From Sweet Adelines Region 31: Viva A Cappella and Vocal Dimension
  • And a few special performances from further afield, including the 2019 International Quartet Champions, Signature!

We have been absolutely inundated with submissions, and we wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have taken the time to send us something. We will be announcing the full line up in the coming days, but we can reveal now that it is HUGE!

See you all on Sunday the 30th of August at 8pm for a BABS Live that you won’t want to miss!
