Hi - I am a novelist writing a scene set on the night Chris Barber played with Sister Rosetta in the Victoria Hall Hanley in 1957. I have heard him talk about it briefly but would love to know a little more about the impact she had on the audience - not necessarily only at that concert, but during the tour as a whole. I don't know if Chris would  be available to email directly or if anyone else can help? I want this scene to be as authentic as possible. Thanks very much

Can't help much I'm afraid but have you listened to the recordings on the "Lost & Found" series? You do get some sense of atmosphere from these.

My introduction to the band was in 1957(?) at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. Sister Rosetta Tharpe was on tour with the band. I have been a fan ever since.
