Brunch Barnstormers - Harp and a Monkey

The Great War: New Songs & Stories is an exciting performance from award-winning folk experimentalists, Harp and a Monkey, that includes both original songs and re-workings of traditional tunes, alongside field recordings of people who lived through the war. The show is interspersed with the poignant, tragic and humorous anecdotes of a bona-fide First World War expert, singer and WW1 historian Dr Martin Purdy, (writer for BBC’s ‘Who Do you Think you Are?’ magazine and co-author of such critically acclaimed books as ‘Doing Our Bit’ and ‘The gallipoli Oak’). This show expertly blends the poignant and the informative with the humorous, entertaining and musical.
