Acker Bilk & his Paramount Jazz Band
Acker Bilk’s career is one of British music’s success stories. Acker Bilk & His Paramount Jazz Band first gained worldwide fame with the hit single ‘Stranger On The Shore’ in 1962 – it stayed in the charts for 55 weeks and was the first number 1 hit in UK and USA simultaneously.
Since that time Acker and his Paramount Jazz Band have firmly established themselves as one of the most successful and best loved British jazz bands of all time.
Acker has received an MBE for his services to the music industry and was awarded at the BBC Jazz Awards for his unique contribution to jazz in the UK. Recent collaborations include concerts/albums with Chris Barber, Van Morrison and the late Humphrey Lyttelton.
