Robb Johnson: Ordinary Giants

A  family history of the 1930s, World War Two & the Welfare State

Robb Johnson is one of UK’s finest folk singer/songwriters: “An English original”, (Robin Denselow, the Guardian) a “renowned folk-punk” (Time Out). His remarkable song suite Ordinary Giants, told the story of his father’s life and times with contributions from over 30 performers, including award-winning Jazz legend Claire Martin, Justin Sullivan from New Model Army, Tom Robinson, and TUC General secretary Frances O’Grady. Now in his 60s, Hackney-born Robb has been called one of England’s last genuinely political songwriters.
