Returning to the Kirk Theatre the 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.

Including international award-winning artists, animators and storytellers in their ranks, this versatile collective has been commissioned to undertake bespoke song-writing, soundtrack, film and art projects for the likes of Sky Arts and the Department of Sport, Media and Culture.

This event, which is suitable for all ages, is clearly not to be missed.
