The Wind In The Willows: A Folk Opera

Performed by  GreenMatthews



7.30pm  (Doors open at 7.00pm)

A folk music performance which tells a familiar and well-known story and is aimed at adults and anyone over 11 years. The idea of the show is similar to Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds and here traditional English folk songs will be set with new lyrics to tell the tale of Ratty, Mole, Badger and Mr Toad.

The four performers are all familiar and popular performers at our venues. This is the first time they have appeared on the same bill.

Both duos are in our current season of events: Chris Green and Sophie Matthews were formerly known as Blast From The Past and have touring themed traditional English music shows to introduce dozens of fascinating, little known musical instruments (A Brief History Of Music, The Canterbury Tales). Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer are part of company for The Whispering Road – and Vicki’s fascinating Swedish Nyckelharpa always gathers a crowd keen to get a closer look. She will be performing it in this show!
