FOLLOWING a sell-out, celebrated run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, World Poetry Slam Champion Harry Baker and Jazz virtuoso Chris Read, are touring the UK.

And the good news is , the Comedy-Rap-Jazz show called Harry & Chris Save The World is coming to Worcester’s Huntingdon Hall, this November.

A spokesman said: “Last year their family friendly songs prevented an apocalypse and almost saved pandas from extinction.

“Now that they’re drunk on Comedy-Rap-Jazz power, they’re hoping to live up to these outrageous claims in their latest hour of music, lyrics and belly laughs. But can a musician and poet best-friend-double-act save the world from impending doom? All we know is that their act has been crowned by almighty talk show host Jonathan Ross as fabulously entertaining and they were selected as one of the Best Shows at The Edinburgh Fringe by the Guardian.”

World Poetry Slam Champion, performance poet (and maths student) Harry Baker’s poem about prime numbers has been translated into 21 different languages with a combined viewership of over 3m.

The spokesman added: “Harry’s blistering wordplay has seen him coined as ‘a champion’ by Ed Sheeran, ‘a show stealer’ by Scroobius Pip and Scott Mills described a performance on his BBC Radio 1 show as ‘the greatest thing I’ve ever seen’. Harry’s debut anthology, The Sunshine Kid was published with Burning Eye in 2014 and a subsequent show of the same name was voted Best Spoken Word show of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015.”

Acclaimed musician Chris Read is an up-and-coming talent on the UK jazz scene and he performs regularly around the country, as well as overseas at venues including the Lincoln Centre in New York and at many festivals including Montreux Jazz Festival, and the Cheltenham Jazz Festival.

The spokesman added: “Chris also performs regularly as a solo artist and with the Chris Read Quartet.” The concert takes place on November 1. For tickets, call 01905 611427.
