A FILM ABOUT ROBB JOHNSON
a modern-day troubadour
Robb Johnson says he’s just a bloke with a guitar. He is. But he’s one who has chronicled our times: painting the less-than-sunny political landscape in the moonlight of the personal. Just like a folk singer should.
He is a modern day troubadour (although his catalogue is a bit patchy on chivalry and courtly love). It means “to compose, to discuss, to invent”.
He is a much-loved and respected singer-songwriter among those who know him. The trouble is not many people do. This film aims to put that right by looking at the past, present and future.
The past: Robb knows that if we are to understand where we are, we need to understand where we came from.
The present: Robb chronicles 30 years of the political and personal.
The future: it starts here.
