Van Winkle a folk musical is a new musical retelling of the classic American tale of ‘Rip Van Winkle’ by Washington Irving, with music & lyrics by Caroline Wigmore , arrangements by Jen Green, and featuring an international cast including Daniel Greco, Rachel Kurtz, and Noel Harron, Jennifer Hepburn, Joel Hutchings, Adam Leonard-Burns, David Mckechnie, Claire Sharpe.

The score captures a sense of Americana, blending folk, gospel, jazz, delta blues and the American singer-songwriter tradition. Julian Woolford (musical writer and author of ‘How Musicals Work and How to Write Your Own’) describes the piece as a "delightfully fresh approach to the well-known tale," and David Spencer (author of ‘The Musical Theatre Writer's Survival Guide’) describes Wigmore & Green’s collaboration "Collectively and individually their voices are distinct and adventurous, without cost to accessibility, bold melodic shape and clean storytelling."

“stunning orchestrations throughout and the music is very clever … the recording is produced to a very high standard … original and authentic” BroadwayWorldUK
