This group is for admirers and friends of the great British duettists, Webster Booth (1902 - 1984) and Anne Ziegler (1910 - 2003), who were also soloists in their own right. Share your memories of Anne and Webster and have discussions about their lives and careers. I have a large collection of rare recordings and photographs, collected since I first met Webster and Anne fifty-one years ago, and I will share some of these with the group.
