Brass Farthing: Victorian Barbershop Tunes (video)


The Steampunk inspired barbershop group Brass Farthing croon and serenade attendees at Maker Faire Bay Area 2011. In this video they tell the story of one rapscallion of a trombonist who steals the heart of a concert-goer’s wife. With their Victorian clothing and brass aviator goggles, you can squint and almost imagine yourself within a Jules Verne novel.
