An Evening with Robb Johnson

  • 27 September 2019 19:30 - 22:30
  • The Watermans Arms, Brocas Street, Eton, UK

Robb Johnson is now widely recognised as one of the finest songwriters working in the UK today. “An English original”, (Robin Denselow, the Guardian) ... “one of our best singer-songwriters ever” (Mike Harding)… a “renowned folk-punk” (Time Out). His songs feature in the repertoires of a wide variety of musicians, from folk legend Roy Bailey to cabaret chanteuse Barb Jungr, and he enjoys a similarly diverse spectrum of critical acclaim – “a modern-day Dostoyevsky” said the US’s Dirty Linen, Mojo made the double CD Gentle Men, a song suite family history of the First World War and its consequences, Album Of The Month, while The Daily Telegraph made it their Folk Album Of 1998. A revised version was recorded in 2013 to coincide with the centenary of the First World War featuring Roy Bailey Barb Jungr, and was again greeted with widespread critical acclaim. Tony Benn said Johnson’s “Winter Turns To Spring” is his favourite song, while Jeremy Corbyn’s favourite is “Bob Crow”.
