Beggars Opera



Beggars Opera are now: Ricky Gardiner Guitairst Virginia Scott Keyboards and Vox Tom Gardiner Drummer. We have been continuing the Beggars Opera tradition by releasing exciting new music from our surreal music pot for over 10 years now.

In the early 70's Beggars Opera recorded 4 albums for the now legendary Vertigo label and our electrifying and unforgettable live performances at home and abroad earned us major success in Germany with the super hit Time Machine from the Waters of Change album of 1971.

Had you been there at that time, you would have seen and heard Ricky Gardiner's sonorous and surreal guitar climbs and bends, Alan Park's lavish organ psychedelia and phenomenal keyboard dexterity, Virginia Scott's ethereal mellotronic orchestration with subliminal song and rhyme, Gordon Sellar's powerful and dynamic, succinct bass growl, Raymond Wilson's pounding and relentless driving drum engine and kilt and Martin Griffith's 'fa la la' minstrel voiced strobe figurine, air conducting the apocalypse.

So it all becomes a story ...
