Upstairs at The Gather
Thursday 18th November – 7pm
Harp & A Monkey’s new show, ‘The Victorians’, reworks and revives the largely forgotten folk, music hall, parlour, industrial, agricultural and street music of the era – and looks at what it can tell us about the people and their many foibles.
The songs cover a myriad of themes from the deportation of convicts to jilted lovers and those opposed to the temperance movement. They bring all the songs to life with thought-provoking, poignant and humorous background tales.
The second part of the evening features material from the band’s acclaimed back catalogue.
A truly heart-warming evening of foot-tapping tunes, intelligent conversation and big laughter.
