We are delighted to welcome back the musical partnership of Anckorn & Dolovich as part of our 20th year celebration. Simon Anckorn and Michael Dolovich, played to a sell-out audience back in 2013 at Hurst College ‘wowing’ concert-goers with a diverse range of unique arrangements played on grand piano and electronic keyboards. This is not only a musical experience, but an evening of relaxed humour with two men who create a magical chemistry in concert.

Anckorn & Dolovich, billed in the 1980s as ‘Keyboard Sensations’ played to critical acclaim taking their unique blend of music and humour from concert halls around the UK including The London Palladium and The Purcell Room. They were also invited to perform at a Royal Variety Performance in the presence of HRH Princess Margaret.

With family life emerging and the beckon call of new careers, their professional partnership was mutually dissolved in 1989, but their friendship has never ceased and the occasional reunion is always hard to turn away! Throughout the subsequent years, Michael has carved out an illustrious career as an inspirational teacher of music within the Bromley Youth Music Trust continuing to perform both solo piano and orchestral concerts in the London area. Simon settled into life locally in Hurstpierpoint working as a property professional but the lure of music and the arts never far away.

Simon & Michael will be joined by Stef Grimett (Drums) and Nick Kay (Bass).
