    Bernard Stanley "Acker" Bilk is an English clarinettist, known for his trademark goatee, bowler hat, striped waistcoat and his breathy, vibrato-rich, lower-register clarinet style. Bilk was not an international star until 1962 when he composed and dedicated a melody entitled "Jenny" to his newborn daughter. He was approached by a British television series for permission to use that melody, but to change the title to "Stranger on the Shore".
