The Ballad of Ephraim Flint

The Ballad of Ephraim Flint is an adventure told through a scintillating mix of storytelling and music devised by writer and balladeer Cathy Lesurf (former docu-drama silver medal winner at The Radio Festival of New York; lead singer/writer with Fairport Convention and Albion Band). Inspired by the African sailors who fought with Nelson at Trafalgar, Ephraim is a hero who defies expectation. In the aftermath of his war on the 'fighting' Temeraire, Flint sails to England on a quest to find his son, and discovers a peace-time England as perilous as the guns of Trafalgar. His adventures are brought to life by new band Wolfscote: the powerful singing partnership of Lesurf and Isobel Morris (Bruise), and the distinctive guitar styles of Jim Kimberley and Gary Southwell (Curt Glance) draw on a rich seam of traditional music to create a beautiful soundscape, with harp, ukelele, concertina, and a guest choir. Narration is by TV and Theatre virtuoso, Maxine Finch (Coronation Street, Holby City, Waterloo Road).

    Excellent. A really unusual piece of work, very well performed.I don't know if they are planning to stage it again, but I would recommend it if they do.

    I just phoned to reserve my ticket - apparently tickets are selling well, so anyone who hasn't reserved yet might want to give the library a call just in case they sell out. It's quite a small venue.
