Paul Tatton, Bass Section Leader

I’ve  been singing barbershop for over 30 years and still get the same buzz. I want to pass on my experience to the chorus so they can get that same buzz to the full. I sing with Cottontown gold medal chorus of Bolton. I also sing with 2017 senior quartet gold medallists, Three ‘n’ Easy.

Richard Barley Baritone Section Leader

Richard Barley

Richard has been singing barbershop since the early nineties, having started with a club in the West Midlands. He initially sang bass before he saw the light and switched to baritone. This is his second spell with Harmony Revival after he moved to France for a while. He has been with the club for about eight years in total. He’s from Dudley – which is in the Black Country – and he doesn’t like being called a Brummie!   He also sings with the Monday Mondays and is a member of two quartets.

Ian Grimshaw Lead Section Leader

Ian Grimshaw, Lead Section Leader

I first fell for this fantastic hobby about 9 years ago when I joined Rainy City chorus I did two years there under Ted Ward. I then moved to Harmony Revival where I sing under the direction of Jack Haslam. Later I heard about Cottontown chorus in Bolton. I went to hear what they had to offer and was bowled over. It was fab so I joined them too. I guess I want to give back my experiences and knowledge to other members so they can enjoy this
fantastic hobby as I do. Such a great bunch of men who all help one another. Love it!
