Desperately Seeking Paul : Paul Weller Fan Podcast

EP75 - Barbara Snow - Honorary Councillor - ”Daylight turns to moonlight, and I’m at my best…”

December 30, 2021

My latest guest is Honorary Councillor - Barbara Snow - a widely respected and popular vocalist, trumpeter, pianist, composer and arranger, who has also established a significant reputation as an educator of some note. She now teaches the piano at Royal Russell School, Croydon.

Barbara played trumpet in the live band for the debut tour in October 1983 - small venues in Europe as warm ups prior to bringing it over to the UK - also playing trumpet on the single version of My Ever Changing Moods and on the Café Bleu LP for four tracks - Me Ship Came In, Dropping Bombs on the Whitehouse, A Gospel and Headstart for Happiness.

Barbara studied at the Royal Academy of Music, and has played in African, reggae and salsa bands; jazz and orchestral styles, and in between tours and recording has built up a teaching reputation with both piano and trumpet. She has devised a way to teach piano to very young children, which has been described as “revolutionary”.
