John Kirkpatrick

  • 7:30pm Saturday 11 Nov 2017
  • This Armistice Day at Hanger Farm John Kirkpatrick opens a kit bag of songs from the two World Wars in a programme that highlights two different kinds of material. As you'd expect, there'll be a fair old smattering of the popular hits of the day - designed to keep the spirits high, to raise a smile, share a chorus, and provide a moment's respite from the horrors on every side, and find the heart to keep going. And threaded through these selections, John will also give an airing to some of the songs sung on the Front Line by the service personnel themselves - tunes sung on everyone's lips wedded to new words, conjured up far from home by an army of ordinary folk doing their best to be good soldiers. You'll hear how experiences on the front were dealt with and described with great directness, wit, robust humour, and, occasionally, very fruity language!

  • Cost: TICKETS £14/£12
