List of British Music Hall Musicians


This List of British music hall musicians includes a related list of British Variety entertainers.

Music Hall and Variety

Music Hall, Britain's first mass entertainment, emerged, broadly speaking, in the mid-19th century, and ended (arguably) after the First World War, when the halls rebranded their entertainment as Variety.[1] Perceptions of a distiction in Britain between bold and scandalous Victorian Music Hall and subsequent, more respectable Variety may differ (in the USA, Burlesque and Vaudeville have analogous connotations).[2]
