Who ARE The Telfordaires?

We are an all-male voice chorus based in Telford, Shropshire, specialising in a cappella singing from the barbershop tradition. We offer our members a sense of achievement from taking on new challenges in the company of cheerful and friendly people, and our audiences the delight of being sung to in four-part harmony. We belong to the British Association of Barbershop Singers and we welcome new members.

We support a range of local events with our songs - from community fund-raisers to more formal Civic performances.  We also enter Regional and National singing competitions.  

To get a flavour of how we sound, below is our performance at the 2024 BABS Barbershop Convention in Harrogate.   We exceeded our expectations and were pleased to come 8th.   We also won the Small Chorus award and came top in our devision.   

Here is a project we put together during lockdown in 2021 which was showcased showcased at the  2021 Virtual Convention of the British Association of Barbershop Singers.   This was a new arrangement by our then MD,  Dr Liz Garnett.  The video captures a particularly special moment on our route back to doing what we love.
