For over 600 years stories of Robin Hood have held sway in the English imagination. With Little John, Will Scarlet, Much the miller’s son, Friar Tuck and the rest of the Merry Fellowship, Robin Hood inhabits a place in the leafy shadows of our minds – somewhere where it’s always high summer, where venison is always being roasted, where tyranny rides roughshod over the green freedoms of England and where the wrongs and injustices of the world are mended by subversion and trickery.
Hugh Lupton and Nick Hennessey tell and sing their way deep into the secret, dappled heart of Sherwood and the ancient tradition of English dissent.
