A Dose of Utter Nonsense

A Dose of Utter Nonsense!

This new CD is a collection of songs, readings and piano music, based on the wonderful writings of those two masters of the absurd, Edward Lear and Lewis Carroll. It derives from a concert put on in Hastings Museum in 2010, and features some of the original performers: Geoff Hutchinson (narration), Gary Marriott (tenor songs & narration) and Rebecca Mason (jazz singer). All the music is by Michael Short, who also plays the piano and keyboards.
