5pm – 6pm King Size Slim

In 2005 Toby Barelli aka KING SIZE SLIM began experimenting with a new sound. A sound fully conscious of its roots but with a new story to tell. Having spent the previous 4 years touring and recording with TwoTone pioneers The Selecter along with other Ska and Reggae luminaries, the sound was always going to be rhythm led, heavy on the bass and rootsy in the melody. The trademarks of that sound emanate from a road-beaten Resophonic guitar, a powerful and direct vocal style and a peculiar rhythm section of Double Bass and a duo of Percussionists.  It‘s a heavyweight acoustic sound that shouts loud and kisses sweet.

How Chicago! Imagists 1960s & 70s in our Ground floor gallery will be open until 8.30pm. For more information about this free exhibition, click here.

Don’t’ forget to visit our family-friendly Café Bar on the first floor which will be open all day.
