Description

The evening will take us on a journey from the 1930s and golden oldie sounds such as the Fred Astaire classics, Cheek to Cheek and The Continental, through years of  well-hummed melodies, including Oh What a Beautiful Mornin’ from Oklahoma!, Who Will Buy?, from Oliver!, Scott Joplin’s The Entertainer from The Sting and Ennio Morricone’s beautiful theme from the celebration of the silver screen that was Cinema Paradiso.

And not forgetting tunes that gave the harmonica a starring role: Moon River, Last of the Summer Wine, John Barry’s Midnight Cowboy and Dances with Wolves, and the Genevieve Waltz composed and famously played in the 1953 film Genevieve by Larry Adler at many points along the route from London to Brighton,  accompanying the jolly mishaps of Kenneth Moore, Dinah Sheridan, Kay Kendall and John Gregson. Ah happy days!

This festival show will be the gentlest of road trips down a winding memory lane, with plenty of moments to make you smile and perhaps bring a fond tear to the eye.


Harmonica player Phil Hopkins is a virtuoso of the instrument – there are none finer – as well as being a percussionist and musical director. He will be joined by three other top professionals from London’s Theatreland; Rick Finlay on drums, Liam Dunachie on the piano, and Paul Morgan, with his remarkable skills – that have seen him accompany the likes of Peggy Lee, Ronnie Scott, Robbie Williams and Elaine Page – on the double bass.
