"A cracker of a show... a delightful extravaganza and a uniquely dark and different wat to celebrate the winter season. The on-stage chemistry between the artists was a joy to behold, they were obviously having as much fun as the audience, who responded rapturously." - David Pratt - Folk Radio

"It was a brilliant night. What a lovely early Christmas present." - Audience member.

"The story line was hilarious, set to up-beat Christmas music. A brilliant night out, highly recommended." - BBC Radio Sussex Murder cast

Robb Johnson is widely recognised as one of the UK’s finest songwriters.  “An English original”, (Robin Denselow, The Guardian) ... “one of our best singer-songwriters ever” (Mike Harding). He gigs in the UK, Belgium, Germany & the USA, & his songs are covered by many singers, from folk legend Roy Bailey to acclaimed cabaret diva Barb Jungr, & he enjoys a similarly diverse spectrum of critical acclaim – “a modern-day Dostoyevsky” said the US’s Dirty Linen, Mojo made the double CD Gentle Men Folk Album Of The Month, while The Daily Telegraph made it their Folk Album Of 1998, & Tony Benn said Johnson’s “Winter Turns To Spring” was his favourite song.
