Unlocked tells of their lockdown fears & woes & washing facilities, the relief of pilates, Boot Camp, raised beds and how they unlock Castle Grimm’s secret. Told through poems, songs, music and Real Acting.
The Very Grimm Brothers are Adrian Mealing, a Malvern Poetry Slam Champ who sings à cappella with Men In General, A Fistful of Spookies and The Spooky Men’s Chorale (Aus). And John Denton (gtr) who wears several musical hats including his John Denton’s Midnight Band hat.
Jeremy Fallowfield is crisp, fresh, surprising and still quite new. He’s happiest when seeing how far he can make his steel string acoustic guitar play old tunes & new tricks inspired and influenced by players such as Michael Hedges, Don Ross, Andy McKee and Antoine Dufou.
