Folk Bands and Artists
Multi-award-winning songwriter, broadcaster and musical storyteller Daniel Cainer performs excerpts from his highly acclaimed shows. Smart, funny, timely and only slightly irreverent, Cainer’s deeply moving tales about his family and observational comedy are a joy. Feuding tailors, a naughty rabbi, family fables (and foibles) – all the human condition is all here, lovingly and intelligently depicted in a remarkable collection of stories-in-song. With brilliant rhyming and wordplay, great musicianship and haunting tunes, this is an evening that you’ll never forget.
‘An extraordinary performer. His songs are at times heartbreakingly poignant and at others laugh-out-loud funny. Utterly charming, highly recommended’ Edinburgh Festivals Guide Magazine
