Working backwards from the 1930s, the FB Pocket

Orchestra explores repertoire that formed the embryo of

what is now known as popular music.

The members originally began playing together simply as

an exercise in exploring heritage repertoire, taking on a few

informal performances and recording dates as schedules

allowed. The FBPO became an ‘official’ project in the spring

of 2012 and released its first album in October.

The orchestra presents a contemporary slant on popular

acoustic music from the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.

“Atmospheric, yet vibrant, this charming collection of songs

will make you wish you had been born some 100 years ago.

The style, glamour and ‘fabulousness’ of this era is captured

beautifully on the album.” Claire Anderson, Jazz FM
