Harp & A Monkey - The Importance of Digging Holes: The Great War on Sunday 14th October 2018
Harp & A Monkey, the award-winning modern folk music and storytelling trio, are performing “The Importance of Digging Holes”, to mark the ongoing centenary of the First World War. The performances feature both original songs and re-workings of traditional tunes of the day, together with the poignant, tragic and humorous anecdotes of band singer and bona-fide First World War expert Dr Martin Purdy.
Harp and a Monkey, who specialise in moving, amusing and melodic short stories about life, love and remembrance, have been described as “bold and brilliant” by national British newspapers like The Observer, “fantastic” by leading BBC broadcasters like Mark Radcliffe, and “inventive” by international music magazines like Mojo. Such is the outfit’s reputation as a quality live act, they have twice been invited to appear at the annual international showcase (The English Folk Expo) that highlights the best English folk acts on the circuit. They were also named ‘best band’ in the annual folking.com awards in 2016.
The trio, who have been friends for decades, enjoy a fantastic rapport with their audiences and are renowned for their intriguing projects, which have seen them working with museums, art galleries and universities.
Suitable for those aged 8 and over
