Chetham's Bebopping on Northumberland St - Feb 22

In the week before Christmas County Durham's Harry Toulson was heard busking on alto sax outside Marks and Spencer on Northumberland Street. Today, pitching-up at the lower end of Newcastle's busiest shopping street, Toulson brought along fellow Chetham's School of Music student Matthew Stringer. Toulson once again on alto, Stringer blowing tenor, they entertained passers-by with a mid-morning bop tear-up! Bop lives!
