A brand new show from the award-winning modern folk music and storytelling outfit Harp and a Monkey. The trio have revived songs of the Victorian era (popular, music hall, folk, work and street songs) and reworked them for contemporary ears. The songs have been chosen to shed light on lesser known aspects of Victorian life - from the poignant to the humorous. The stories behind the tunes are delivered by the band’s singer and raconteur Martin Purdy, an acclaimed historian, author and broadcaster. Talented multi-instrumentalists and long-standing friends, the trio guarantee a heart-warming performance of foot-tapping tunes, great conversation and laughter suitable for all ages...
