HARP AND A MONKEY
‘Utterly, bloody wonderful.’ Mike Harding
Leftfield folk and storytelling trio Harp and a Monkey specialise in poignant, humorous and melodic short stories about northern life, love and remembrance.
Their third album, ‘War Stories’, was labelled ‘bold and brilliant’ by The Observer, ‘excellent’ by The Guardian and ‘inventive’ by Mojo. The Lancastrians have since appeared in-session on BBC Radio 2 with the likes of Mark Radcliffe and Clare Balding. Such is their reputation as a quality live act, they have twice been invited to appear at the annual international showcase (English Folk Expo) that highlights the cream of English folk acts on the circuit.
The trio, who have been friends for decades, enjoy a fantastic rapport with their audiences and are firm Cloudspotting favourites. Their set will feature previews of new songs from album number four, which is set for an autumn release.
