Following the huge success of last month's online 'breakfast' with UK poet Les Barker, I have organised a similar event with the hugely funny & talented Keith Donnelly together with one of the UK's finest storytellers, Ursula Holden Gill.
Keith performed here in Humph Hall almost ten years ago - April, 2011. He did a workshop for kids in the afternoon followed by a concert in the evening. The video clip below is of Keith doing one of his kid's songs for the adults.

Keith Donnelly - the funniest thing to happen to folk music since the banjo! Keith is a very [very!] funny, globe-trotting, Geordie tall-tale-telling-singer-songwriter-guitarist. He has toured Australia four times in the last 20 years, to rapturous audiences in all seven states. He is one of the funniest people on the planet and his only real fault is his modesty. But he is also a world class singer-songwriter, plays a mean guitar (and means to play a didgeridoo! A didgeridoo? I mean!). If you’ve seen him before you’ll, for sure, want to see him again. And, if you haven’t seen him before . . . Why not?!?
Ursula Holden Gill is an Award-Winning UK Storyteller, Singer & TV personality. She frequently travels internationally and throughout the UK, using music, movement and real-life observation to inform her own original and traditionally inspired storytelling. If you think you’ve seen storytelling before, just wait until you see what she does with a story! Watch this intro video.
In 2012 she was voted Best Newcomer at The British Awards for Storytelling Excellence.
"Very different, brilliant & rather fantastic." - Martin Carthy MBE
"Keith & Ursula, when their solo commitments allow, enjoy collaborating at each other’s shows. To see them share a whole, ‘Double Header’ Show, is a rare, not-to-be-missed, treat."
