War Stories - Harp & A Monkey
Winner of the folking.com Best Band of 2016.
To mark the ongoing centenary of the First World War, the award-winning modern folk music and storytelling trio Harp and a Monkey have been performing a new show (and recorded an album in conjunction with it) called War Stories. The project has been sponsored by the Arts Council England and the Western Front Association.
The performances feature both original songs and re-workings of traditional songs of the day, field recordings of people who lived through the war (British and German), and the poignant, tragic and humorous anecdotes of band singer and bona-fide First World War expert Dr Martin Purdy.
Tickets £10 from Rowanthorn
