Ocean Harmony really was given the Edge when one of its latest recruits walked through the door.

Brian Edge has clocked up a staggering 50 years of barbershop singing - celebrating the feat in the same year as the British Association of Barbershop Singers reached its own half century.

Brian, from Shirley, Southampton, first entered the world of close harmony singing in 1973, after moving from Weymouth to Poole.

His first choir was Poole Harbour Masters but he has spent most of his barbershop singing hobby as a lead with Southern Union.

Brian has recently documented his thoughts on the many conventions he has experienced - highlighting BABS’ 25th anniversary event at Blackpool in the late 90s as the most memorable.

The 82-year-old former baker is pictured receiving his 50 year BABS certificate from Ocean Harmony chairman David Wilson, pictured left, at a Wednesday rehearsal evening at Colbury Memorial Hall, Ashurst near Totton.
