Julian Gaskell & His Ragged Trousered Philanthropists

Green Note Ltd, Green Note, NW1 7AN , [Venue Details]

Penryn’s premium post-ragtime, rembetika punk, swing polka klezmer blues trio. Travelling with an unfeasibly large selection of instruments including piano, accordions, violin, drums, bouzouki, bass, banjo and resonator...

...JULIAN GASKELL & HIS RAGGED TROUSERED PHILANTHROPISTS bring a wild and yet haunting selection of ballads, folk odysseys, history lessons and protest songs to enthrall and entertain.

Julian Gaskell has been causing trouble around Cornwall with various incarnations of his Philanthropists for nearly twenty years. Often accused of sounding like the wrong voice in the wrong century, Gaskell at least attempts to hit some contemporary social and personal nails on the head with his songwriting, and occasionally succeeds in this.

In addition to this, the band bring vivid and original arrangements of traditional and vernacular music – broadside ballads, Cornish tunes, klezmer, calypso and blues.
