Award-winning song and storytelling trio Harp & A Monkey specialise in poignant, uplifting and melodic short stories (original and traditional) about everyday life, love and remembrance – the extraordinary ordinary.

The Greater Manchester outfit’s work has been described as “bold and brilliant” by the likes of The Observer, “fantastic” and “fascinating” by Mark Radcliffe on BBC Radio 2, “inventive” by Mojo, “excellent” by The Guardian, and “unique” by folk legend Mike Harding.

With four acclaimed albums under their belts, the multi-instrumentalists (expect banjos, harps, accordions, guitars, violas, glockenspiels and more) are regulars on the national concert circuit and guarantee poignancy, humour and great audience rapport at their live shows.

This versatile collective, whose work is rooted in old Lancashire traditions, are regularly commissioned to undertake song-writing, soundtrack, film and art projects.

This one-off matinee event, which is suitable for all ages, is clearly not to be missed.
