Folk at the Barlow are pleased to start the new, and hopefully better, year by welcoming young British traditional folk singer and guitarist George Sansome. George's expressive and thoughtful rendition of traditional song is complemented by his sensitive and accomplished guitar accompaniments. With styles ranging from the wildly energetic to the deeply contemplative, George is a great exponent of what is best in traditional music. Something in his delivery reminds me of Tony Rose. George is blessed with a beautiful voice and seems to be able to change its timbre to suit the particular song, which is a special gift. He is of course a third of the dynamic and greatly-acclaimed folk trio Granny's Attic and is responsible for a lot of their on-stage energy! His debut solo album, entitled George Sansome, has been launched this year and can be purchased from the Granny's Attic website.
George has a strong association with our club as his Aunty Lesley is a member. We hope to see him or the trio in the flesh in the real world soon!
