Witty Ditties – 400 years of Comic Song
Following on from their acclaimed show A Brief History of Music, this year GreenMatthews bring you a new show which explores our rich history of witty wordplay and melodic mirth.
Chris Green (piano, guitar, accordion) and Sophie Matthews (early woodwinds, flute, saxophone) bring you four centuries of chromatic comedy, ranging from bawdy restoration ballads to stinging Sixties satire via Victorian music hall variety. Featuring songs by Noel Coward, Tom Lehrer, Flanders and Swann and a host of lesser-known songwriters, this fun and fast-moving revue will have you rolling in the aisles!
“You guys are awesome!” Bill Barclay, Director of Music at Shakespeare’s Globe
