SURPRISING BRITISH STUFF
Andy Reed’s One-Man-Show
The „British Boy“ presents fascinating and entertaining traditional songs and music. He accompanies his impressive vocals – from soothing warmth to shanty power – with guitar and accordion. Jigs, Reels, Polkas und Hornpipes that set the feet tapping and Barock and Beethoven also feature in his new programme.
Both witty and serious he comments with flair in English or German on the cultural and historical background to the songs and offers plenty of opportunity and support for the audience to join in.
„Imaginative, quick-witted and with a powerful eloquence and charm he commented in his own inimitable english manner… …through his choice of words, facial expressions, gestures and props, he also gave a great time to the 40 of the 80 present whose English is not so good. „ Folkcamps Germany e.V

Although Ireland does not fall under the term „Very British“, irish songs and tunes can easily be included if desired.
