Chris had a long performing career in the UK before moving to France in 2005. He played on the radio, theatre, festivals, holiday camps (Haven and Ladbrokes), cruise ships and bar/restaurants. He even figured on New Faces on UK tv. His wide repertoire and skills with electric and acoustic guitars as well as banjo make him perfect for all occasions. Ideal for small installations in bars, cafés, restaurants. Great for private parties, birthdays, weddings and baptisms. With his fantastic light setup, he is also a fantastic choice for larger venues such as festivals, marchés and fêtes.

The culmination of a young Chris Kern's performing career came with his New Faces almost back before web sites! Success didn't go to his head though and he steadfastly kept his day job, performing when opportunities arose.

Through a hairdressing career, cruise ships, radio and finally a complete change with a move to France.
We in Nouvelle Aquitaine are fortunate to be able to see him at fêtes, festivals, market days, bars and restaurants. He is available for weddings and private parties too.

Throughout his long career Chris has supported and played with the best. The Searchers, Charlie Williams, Bobby Davro, Bernard Manning, Paper Lace to name just a few. He has played in more bands than he cares to list, wishing to focus on his solo performance. Pedal controls allow a wide range of backing tracks that really support his talent.
