My name is Kate Garner, and I sing and play piano for vintage events, specialising in music from the Thirties and Forties.

I’ve always loved music from the past. My Nana was a London pub pianist, and my Dad bought me a gramophone at a flea market when I was 12. I learnt my repertoire from old records and at family parties, where everyone would gather around the piano at the end of the night – as I still do!

I adore hunting around jumble sales and charity shops, looking for that unique dress or hat, and I love to imagine what story lies behind each lucky find.
