Songwriter Robb Johnson performs his acclaimed song cycle Gentle Men, telling the stories of Robb's grandfathers Ernest Johnson and Harry Jenner - who survived the First World War but were forever in its shadow.

Billy Bragg describes Gentle Men as "A wonderful mixture of the political and personal that stretches over their entire lives as young men, soldiers in the trenches, working in the 30s, eventually becoming fathers and grandfathers. It's a really moving piece of work.'

The Guardian called Gentle Men a 'classic' and the BBC said, "In all the artistic commemoration of the First World War, I wager nothing will show more humanity or understanding than Gentle Men."

Writer A.L. Kennedy will introduce this special performance. Robb Johnson will be joined by musicians Jenny Carr and John Forrester.
