Joseph Tabrar

Joseph Tabrar (November 5 1857 – 1931) was one of the most famous songwriters of British music hall (similar to American Vaudeville), probably most famous for the song Daddy Wouldn't Buy Me a Bow Wow (1892).

Joseph was born into a family of "stage people". His father was George Tabrar.

Tabrar began his musical career in the church choir. He later became a bell hanger and a plumber. During his 60-year songwriting career, Tabrar wrote thousands of songs, many of them written to order.
