One Man’s Story is a fundraising collaborative work between ConYoBongo and Genie In The Gutter, a local arts for social change charity who are celebrating their 10th year anniversary of supporting some of Liverpool’s most marginalised citizens. Following losing 90% of its core funding in 2016, Genie In The Gutter aims to raise funds with this production so that its doors can remain open to continue to support those who need it for years to come.

One Man’s Story tells the life story of Mr. ‘Bongo’ Eddie Folk, both percussionist and front man for the acclaimed American musical band Kid Creole and the Coconuts for over 30 years.
