It wouldn’t feel like Christmas was coming without a performance in Ramsbottom by popular trio Harp and a Monkey, and this year they are planning something a bit different at their local folk club – a true Lancashire celebration.
The acclaimed electro-folk-storytellers have been described by Mark Radcliffe on BBC Radio 2 as
‘charming – impossible not to like’ and fRoots magazine as
‘undoubtedly one of the most vital and charismatic things happening in English folk music right now’. They will be joined by special guests including Steve Canavan.
Steve is the son of the late, great Lancashire folk music stalwart Mike Canavan, and a real chip off the old block. He will perform a mix of his own material, some of his dad’s, and a few Lancashire sing-a-longs as well.
As per usual, when headliners Harp and a Monkey are in town, the audience can expect plenty of poignancy, humour and banter, as well as some of the most original, melodic and thought-provoking music on the circuit. The band have also promised to exclusively unveil a couple of Lancashire-themed surprises of their own on the night. A show not to be missed.
