Mister Keith – the self-confessed originator of Victorian Pop – creates the atmosphere of a music hall, where songs, stories and laughter collide on a night you won’t forget. Britain has a happy knack of producing quirky, lyrical songwriters – think of Ray Davies and Squeeze and Mister Keith (the alias of songwriter Keith Ayling) brings something new to this tradition with a vintage twist.
Regularly theatrical, playful and interactive, he brings the heart and soul of beautiful songs to life with a small ‘orchestra’ of multi-instrumentalists and invites the audience in to his charming world of romantic times-gone-by. Featuring four-part harmonies and memorable melodies, everyone will sing, smile and discover musical skills they never knew they had. Inventive and eccentric, they’ll even create music on a baking tin and whisk and often write songs on the spot!
Throughout his 33-year career, Mister Keith has performed on BBC, ITV, Five and MTV plus a host of stages large and small around the world. He continues to have a high profile in national music education as a lecturer and TED speaker on songwriting.
