Tony Barby is a widely experienced musician and choir leader. Since his schooldays he has played an array of stringed instruments in many pop, rock and jazz bands. He has always been a lover of harmony singing and, finding that he had a natural talent for arranging and teaching vocal parts, since 2011 has led community choirs, raising thousands of pounds for worthy causes along the way. Aside from Bradford on Song, he also leads Find Your Voice, a choir of some 30 members, which he set up in Box, Wiltshire. Tony also plays guitar and charango (South American 10-stringed instrument) in Radio Banska, a world jazz band based in Bath. He also occasionally gives solo ukulele performances.
