Fresh from a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, musician, performer and writer Matt McGuinness presents his debut show as part of a UK tour. Uplifting, anthemic tunes punctuate stories and conversation, shedding light on mental health with self-deprecating honesty and dark humour. This show is for anyone who has ever overcome one of life’s many challenges or is battling to do so.

We Are What We Overcome is supported by Mind, The Samaritans and the Mental Health Foundation.

Reviews

“Songs with substance, somewhere between Folk, Gospel & pure Rock n Roll”

“Moments of bright energy shine through”

Storge

““At times this show is like a series of small polished TED talks on Mental Health, Parenting, Humanism and Love, but these are punctuated by poetic songs loaded with meaning and metaphor.””
