We assume that it is also in your interest that the
Chris Barber website remains accessible to the public as a "documentary
At this point I would like to thank all Barber fans and
musicians from all over the world who have supported me in the past years

can be found here on this website and I also appreciate any contact in the
But now, please welcome Toni Ginsel as the new
Best wishes, Andreas Wandfluh
This is the new
team starting in 2021:
