Von Trapped: The Family Is Stuck Inside, So Why Not Sing Parodies?

The Marshes, an ordinary English family, have gained extraordinary fame for their musical spoofs of lockdown life. And no, they are not trying to be the von Trapps.

Meet the Marshes — Ben, Danielle, and their four children Alfie, 14, Thomas, 13, Ella, 11 and Tess, 9 — a family from the English town of Faversham that has gained unexpected fame for their revamped, tongue-in-cheek cover tunes about life in times of Covid. This six-voice choir, with its sweet harmonies and the occasional wobbly note, is creating songs that dramatize the mundane moments of lockdown life, from too much screen time to the horrors of remote learning.
