The soundtrack from Robb Johnson’s festive entertainment MURDER AT THE GRANGE will be released December 1st, & available as an LP & digital download.
Twelve original festive songs, characterised by Johnson’s characteristic songwriting excellence, ranging in tone from the sardonic to the sentimental, featuring traditional seasonal conventions (50s jazz, Father Christmas, mistletoe, sprouts etc) performed by The Xmas Irregulars:
Sian Allen – vocals, trumpet, saxophone
John Forrester – vocals, double bass
Robb Johnson – vocals, guitar, tuned percussion
Fae Simon – vocals
Roger Stevens – vocal, piano
Arvin Johnson– drums, Saskia Tomkins – violin & viola
Last year Murder At The Grange premiered to enthusiastic, sold-out audiences at The Ropetackle in Shoreham & Chats Palace in Hackney – “a cracker of a show… a delightful extravaganza and a uniquely dark and different way to celebrate the winter season” was Folk Radio’s opinion
