Harp And A Monkey

Harp And A Monkey at the Black Swan Folk Club
Thursday 7 December 2017
Black Swan Inn, Peasholme Green, YO1 7PR
With instruments including guitar, banjo, melodica, harp and glockenspiel, electro-folk storytellers Martin Purdy, Simon Jones and Andy Smith were a hit on their first visit here. A deep Lancashire sensibility shines through their beautifully crafted and sometimes spooky vignettes of northern life. Tonight’s show will feature songs from their War Stories project of new material and re-worked traditional songs relating to the Great War.
