R.I.P. Acker Bilk

I was very saddened to hear today of the death of British jazz legend Acker Bilk. I was lucky enough to photograph his 80th birthday concert at the Concorde Club in Southampton. He provided the music of my youth with his hit ‘Stranger on the Shore’ which was in the charts for 55 weeks and charted both here and in the United States as well as Europe. R.I.P Acker.

About Gerry Walden

I am a stock photographer with far more years of experience than I would care to mention. Located in Southampton (UK) I am sandwiched between two national parks and my home town is a major seaport. I shoot mostly people related images, and travel when I can. I am resident photographer at a major concert venue in the town which means I get to shoot a variety of musicians.
