Lancastrian trio Harp & a Monkey are Martin Purdy (vocals, glockenspiel, accordion, harmonica and keyboards), Simon Jones (harp, guitar, viola) and Andy Smith (banjo, melodica, guitar and programming).
Their latest album, The Victorians, was released in November 2019 and features a collection of street, parlour, work, popular and rural songs from the Victorian era that the trio reworked for contemporary ears. It includes tales of naked life-savers, bare-knuckle boxers, evolutionary moths and wife auctions and was mixed by Darren Jones – the go-to studio engineer for the likes of Stormzy.
Doors open 7.30pm for an 8pm start.
Tickets £14 (£16 door) under 16s half price
