On 18th April 2017 UK Prime Minister Theresa May announced a snap General Election for 8th June 2017. Within 24 hours all ongoing plans at the Invisible Folk Club were put on hold as we embarked on our first Podcast of Protest.

Was the protest song still alive and kicking? A couple of days later the word went out: 'It's time to get angry, we want hear your protest songs! Raise your pen, raise your voice, raise the roof, this country belongs to me and you!'

Material soon arrived and producer Steve Yarwood curated a podcast forged in that pre-election climate of uncertainty and fake news.

This podcast is episode 1 of 2 featuring singer and song collector Chris Lawley. An eclectic mix of traditional folk, English music hall and First World War soldiers' songs from the mid 19th to early 20th century.

Chris has made sporadic appearances in folk clubs down the years but serious interest in traditional folk music is a relatively recent development. The subsequent discovery of music hall produced another rich source of songs, then the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War 1 gave further inspiration and material.

Chris and his younger brother Mark (also featured in this podcast) have been making a name for themselves as the uniformed duo The Pals who re-enact 'trench songs' about soldiers' experiences. The gallows humour found in these songs is part of the coping mechanism necessary on those hellish battlefields.
