Created to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the Great War, musicians Chris Green and Sophie Matthews use music and song to tell the story of ‘The War to End All Wars’. A scintillating mixture of soldiers’ songs, music hall numbers, war poems set to new music and original compositions. Featuring a host of wartime standards such as Pack Up Your Troubles, Tipperary and Goodbyeee as well as brand-new musical settings of poems by lesser-known war poets such as May Wedderburn Cannan and C. Fox-Smith.
