Description

Georgia Lewis, a “young, exuberant & musically adept” (R2 Magazine) folk singer and multi-instrumentalist has been garnering attention on the English folk scene with her “alluring and engaging stage presence” (Saltcellar Folk Club). Joined onstage by Felix Miller (guitar), Rowan Piggott (fiddle), Tom Sweeney (bass) and Evan Carson (bodhrán), “she is fast becoming one of the most in-demand artists on the club and festival circuit.” (Eastbourne Folk Club).

The band perform “both contemporary and traditional songs with a character and raunch that makes the hairs on your arms ​stand up and take note.” (Lou Rhodes)

______________

Mac Seka’s music takes the traditions of his native Senegal and interweaves it with musical influences from Mali, American blues and English folk finger styles to underpin his songs written in his tribal language of Wolof. His songs somehow seem to transcend the language barrier with tales of love, friendship, family and sorrow as well as the trials faced by those living in Senegal. He is joined by musicians he has met in his many years of living in Bath to create a dreamy aural landscape. His soft voice is like a Senegalese lullaby that takes you on a journey to his homeland.
