8. The Bremen Town Musicians

This week on Grimm Reading we meet Germany's finest animal supergroup: 'The Bremen Town Musicians'.

Fearing for his life, a lute playing donkey escapes his owner and hits the road to Bremen. On route he forms a band with a hound, a cat and a cock, and plans for a string of tour dates begin to form.

Getting closer to Bremen they spy a cottage and head over to investigate. But little do our musicians know, it's occupied by a gang of nasty robbers...

This cult favourite Grimm tale has inspired artists and musicians across the world. Does it deserve the hype and just what exactly has got the cock in such a tizz?



Theme music: Bicycle Waltz by Goodbye Kumiko

Other music: Johannes Brahms's Lullaby performed by Howie Mitchell and Ruth Meyer
