Guildhall stages album launch

Music, performance art and politics will all play a part when Karl and the Marx Brothers launch their debut LP Angry Folk on Friday, April 12, in the Guildhall Theatre, Derby.

The LP contains 11 original songs taking inspiration from recent events - some personal, some political, and some both together as they are in reality.

The evening’s entertainment will start at 8pm with guests being serenaded on arrival by Simon Monaghan, with his best impression of Woody Guthrie, surrounded by an angry crowd of Mis-Imp: Improv Comedy Nottingham, ‘protesters’ intent on nothing in particular.

In the foyer, to the sounds of folk DJs Hartley and John spinning their vinyl acoustic collections, Derby’s homeless hostels representatives will be present. All profits from the evening’s performance will be going to this crucial cause.

Upstairs in the theatre, the first half of the show will feature the solo acoustic tunes of Josh Kemp and the bluesy folk of Scott Thomas.

After a short interval Karl and the Marx Brothers, five 30/40-somethings, will be previewing debut LP Angry Folk … 11 songs of love and politics.

Tickets are available on 01332 255800.

Angry Folk is available from April 14 on CD, vinyl, and download from CD baby; iTunes, the band’s Facebook page, BPM Records, Derby and Music Exchange, Nottingham.
