Recording the narrations for Peter & the Wolf and the Snowman was the last project Sir Ken Dodd undertook. One of the UK’s most famous and best loved comedians and entertainers, he passed away aged 90 in March 2018. This famous son of Liverpool was a keen supporter of the Whitechapel Centre, the Liverpool based charity that is the leading homeless and housing charity in the Liverpool region, working with people who are sleeping rough, living in hostels or struggling to manage their accommodation. Rubicon will support the work of the Whitechapel Centre by contributing a percentage of the royalties from sales of this album to the charity that Sir Ken supported.
Rubicon is tickled to be releasing this wonderful album by Sir Ken and the Liverpool String Quartet.
