Robin Grey

13 May @ 19:30 - 21:30

From £8.50

Robin Grey and friends presents an evening of acoustic musical entertainment, featuring Emmy Broughton on harp and flute and Amy Bowles on guitars with support from the legendary Gideon Conn.

Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Robin Grey started his music career at the age of 5 with the help of a Fisher-Price cassette recorder and a love of singing Burt Bacharach songs to his grandma. His musical tastes soon branched out, thanks to mix tapes that arrived in the post after collecting tokens from overly sugared breakfast cereal packets.

He has since composed five albums of thoughtful and gently experimental folk music which have been streamed over 8m times winning him fans as far away as Brazil, Korea and Russia. His music has ended up in a cult Korean gay movie, a French TV comedy series and other suitably random locations.

Robin has graced the boards of Cecil Sharpe House, Hebden Bridge Trade’s Club and The Union Chapel, sharing stages with Kae Tempest, Peggy Seeger, Ed Sheeran, Nick Mulvey and Sam Lee along the way.

With other hats on, Robin devised and performs a show called ‘Three Acres And A Cow‘, teaching people about English radical history through folk songs; has been undertaking musical cycling pilgrimages under the rubric of ‘Pedal Folk‘ and also infamously serenaded David Cameron during the 2015 general election, which won him praise from Ian Hislop and Charlie Brooker plus less flattering attention from Guido Fawkes.
