‘Witty Ditties’

This event has ended

Chris Green (piano, guitar, accordion) and Sophie Matthews (early woodwinds, flute and saxophone) are modern-day balladeers, specialising in telling stories through song. GreenMatthews are firm believers in the age-old power of narrative song to delight contemporary audiences. Taking their cue from ancient troubadour tradition, they are 21st-century wandering players – touring their self-created shows extensively throughout the UK and Europe. Although their music and tales are rooted in the past, the performance is entirely of the 21st century, immediate and accessible to modern audiences.

In ‘Witty Ditties’ they bring four centuries of chromatic comedy, ranging from bawdy Restoration ballads to stinging Sixties satire. Featuring songs by Noel Coward, Tom Lehrer, Flanders and Swnn and a host of other lesser-known songwriters, this fun and fast-moving revue will have you rolling in the aisles.
