Working with fiddle, voice, tenor guitar and drones to create crisp arrangements of old songs, and new compositions. Georgia’s debut solo album is a celebration of East Anglian traditional singers, and the music and musicians that inspire her own work. ’Harry’s Seagull’ is a collection of songs and tunes that paint a picture of the landscape of the region and the communities that are a part of its history.
A bouquet of songs of empowerment, love, loss, land and sea, peppered with tunes from the region. The title is taken from the lone self penned tune on the album, ‘Harry’s Seagull’ – a dedication to Harry Cox, one of the most influential folk singers of the twentieth century.
Imaginative arrangements using stripped back instrumentation of just fiddle and harmonium to support Georgia’s pure and distinctive voice. On this tour she’ll be joined by Aaren Bennett on guitar accompanying some of the material. Together they’ll also be sharing some of the first music to come from Georgia’s ‘Shackleton Violin’ project – music written on a violin built by Steve Burnett, from floorboards from Sir Ernest Shackleton’s former Edinburgh home.
