A fundraising musical production about the transatlantic tale of ‘Bongo’ Eddie Folk, world-renowned percussionist with the likes of Al Green, James Brown, and Kid Creole and the Coconuts, and patron of Liverpool charity Genie In The Gutter.
Co-produced and co-performed by theatre veterans and Genie In The Gutter’s service users, the production hopes to raise money to help some of Merseyside’s most vulnerable people into recovery through creative arts.
Written by Carolyn Edwards, and directed by award-winning director and producer Jen Heyes.
“His extreme sense of humour soon became a tonic for me, and for the other band members. He was the life of the party.” – August Darnell ‘Kid’ on Eddie.
