It’s hard to believe that Shropshire’s scandalous satirical singing combo has survived two whole decades on so little talent!
It was in the Ashton Theatre in December 1993 that Shrewsbury School’s Director of Music John Moore took to the stage with comedian Fred Phipps and raconteur Chris Eldon Lee to perform an evening of silly songs and manic monologues. Little did the original trio appreciate the dark artistic forces they were unleashing upon so many poor, unsuspecting Salopians. Since then the group – through its various line-ups – has played to 50,000 deliriously happy people from Brighton to The Borders; including appearances at the Edinburgh Festival, on BBC1 and BBC2, and live by satellite across the world from Chicago to Cambodia.
Now, for two very special nights only, the founding fathers return to the scene of the original crime together with fellow group members Martin Monologue Jones, Nonny James, Sally Tonge and (of course) Shropshire’s very own agricultural starlet Freda the Female Farmer to present a riotous, irreverent and lampooning evening of their latest and greatest material. This is a concert that is definitely not to be missed (except by younger children).
