Boff from Chumbawamba says – “his songs are incisive and clever and witty and you can sing them on your way to work.” Robb Johnson is now widely recognised as one of the finest songwriters working in the UK today. His songs feature in the repertoires of a wide variety of musicians, from folk legend Roy Bailey to acclaimed cabaret diva Barb Jungr, and he enjoys a similarly diverse spectrum of critical acclaim – “a modern-day Dostoyevsky” said the US’s Dirty Linen, Mojo made the double CD Gentle Men Folk Album Of The Month, while The Daily Telegraph made it their Folk Album Of 1998. The Irregulars are a band that includes Robb’s friends Roger Watson on melodeon, Saskia Tomkins on violin, Roger’s mate Paul Midgley on percussion and John Forrester on bass and backing vocals.

Robb’s latest album is ‘My Best Regards’, released in 2016. See Robb Johnson’s website or the Wikipedia entry for Robb Johnson for biography and discography.
