Tim Dalling sings Unsustainable Songs 

Specially for this festival Tim Dalling will dive into the ecological zeitgeist and the world of climate chaos. The songs will veer wildly from zesty frivolity to poignant philosophy, celebrating exciting surviving species, mourning the lost ones, praising signs of hope and encouraging the audience to sing along with global gusto. It will put a smile on your face, a tear in your eye and a song in your heart.
