Broadside Bangers

Friday 22nd March 2024 at 7:30pm.

A wild, haunting journey through a murky past to a dark future, guaranteed to enthral, educate and entertain!

Cornwall’s premium post-ragtime, rembetika punk, swing polka klezmer blues trio present an anthology of some of the most melodramatic, gruesome and supernatural broadside ballads from the 17th to 19th centuries, covering everything from funeral arrangements to cat food and rural insurrection!

Printed and sung in the Georgian and Victorian eras, many of these tunes have lain unrecorded and largely unperformed for the last 100 years. Indeed, many of their tunes have been lost to time, and so the words have been rearranged and re-fitted with newly composed music on piano, accordions, violin, drums, bouzouki, bass, banjo and guitar.

Expect a wild, haunting journey through a murky past to a dark future, guaranteed to enthral, educate and entertain!

Suitable for 12+
Running time: 90mins + interval.
