Description

"Gentle Men" tells the stories of Robb Johnson's grandfathers, Ernest Johnson and Harry Jenner. The songs present the effect of history on two of its statistics, two gentle men, who survived the First World War, but were forever in its shadow.

Since the 2013 release of the highly acclaimed multi-artist double CD of "Gentle Men", Robb Johnson has been performing these songs not just with other musicians but also solo.

For these performances, Robb has developed a spoken word narrative that links and informs the narrative of the songs.

This recording was taken at a performance in Wigan Parish Church in May 2015. As David Cartlidge, the promoter of that concert, says in the CD booklet notes: "The spoken word sections added immeasurably to the story and strengthened its universal nature... the overall performance was visceral, totally engaging and a privilege to witness".
