This event has been and gone.
Mermaids in cages, cuckolded mole catchers and Victorian houses of ill-repute are all among the influences of Harp and a Monkey, one of East Lancashire's most unique and award-winning musical offerings. Combined with their unusual choice of instruments, a Harp and a Monkey show is something truly intriguing and entertaining.
The trio's melodic and hauntological storytelling, which is always underpinned by a firm commitment to classic songsmithery, has caught the attention and support of the likes of Steve Lamacq, Mark Radcliffe, Clare Balding and Mike Harding on BBC Radio 2, Lopa Kothari and Nick Luscombe on BBC Radio 3, Folk Radio UK and many more international, national and regional broadcasters.
Harp And A Monkey
Songs about cuckolded molecatchers, a lone English oak tree that grows at Gallipoli, care in the community and medieval pilgrims...we can only be talking about the folk experimentalists Harp and a Monkey. Their electro-folk storytelling is imbued with a deep Lancashire sensibility that shines through in their beautifully crafted and sometimes spooky vignettes of northern life, love and remembrance.
