Adrian May's Discovering England at Jaywick Martello Tower
Music, Sat 17 Jun 2017
A wry look at England and Englishness from a creative left-wing viewpoint. In the songs and poems of his new book and album, Adrian May takes a wry look at the vexed questions of English identity. Ranging from the comic to the poignant, where 'Nobody hates the English as much as they hate themselves', the songs deal with irony, eccentricity and rebel heroes like John Ball, the leader of the Peasants' Revolt of 1381. The approach is progressive and inclusive.
The gig will include a performance by Adrian in his musical duo Face Furniture, with double-bassist Murray Griffin of songs form the new book.
