Lincs: Folk legend Mike Harding is bringing the Crumpsall Kid to the Plowright
And he will visit The Plowright Theatre in Scunthorpe on 7th November.
Mike will recall tales of growing up Crumpsall in the 1950s in the shadow of a dark satanic cream cracker factory and tells a shedload of hilarious tales from his early life – from first day at infant school to the dribbling, snuff taking barmpot who dominated his first year in grammar school.
He tells stories of the early 60’s when he played in skiffle groups and rock& roll bands in the Town Halls, the ballrooms and the Working Men’s Clubs of northern England before he discovered folk music and went on to become one of the nation’s favourite funny men.
This is life in the raw as seen through the eyes of the man who is a folk singer and songwriter, poet and playwright, comedian and broadcaster, fell-walker and fly-fisherman and was described by Billy Connolly as the ‘funniest man in England’
