Tour & album launch at The Brunswick.
Christmas morning. A dead man in a locked bedroom in a house full of secrets. Everybody has a motive. But who’s got the key?
Murder At The Grange is a Christmas murder mystery in spoken word & song, created by acclaimed songwriter Robb Johnson & performed by Robb & The Xmas Irregulars.
Presented in the style of a BBC radio drama, there are a narrator, cast members reading as various characters in the narrative, appropriately absurd sound effects - and added original festive songs that comment on the action & reference traditional seasonal conventions (Father Christmas, mistletoe, sprouts etc).
The show consists of two halves, just under an hour each half, there is a fairly equal balance between suspense & comedy.
This year's cast is Sian Allen - Trumpet & Vocals, John Forrester - Double Bass & Vocals, Robb Johnson – Vocals & Guitar, Fae Simon - Vocals, and Roger Stevens – Narrator
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.
This year, there’s a more extensive tour and a soundtrack LP out on Irregular Records.
We are looking forward to celebrating both the tour & the album release with our gig at the Brunswick!
