Virtual House Concert with George Sansome – fully booked

May 27 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Here at Ryburn 3 Step we are trying to keep some activities going under the restrictions imposed by HM Government to combat the spread of COVID-19. We are delighted that George Sansome will be the guest at our first ‘Virtual House Concert’ on Wednesday evening 27 May.

ALL PLACES FOR GEORGE ON 25 MAY ARE NOW BOOKED. PLEASE LOOK OUT FOR THE NEXT VIRTUAL HOUSE CONCERT AND VIRTUAL SESSION.

Using the online meeting app Zoom, you will be able to see, listen to, and talk to George from the comfort of your own home as he sings, plays, and talks us through his upcoming debut CD album which will be released on  24 June. The proceedings will open at 8.30pm for half an hour’s chat with the Ryburn Folk Club regulars, and George will sing, play, and talk from 9.00 to 10.00.

George Sansome is a vibrant trad folk singer and guitarist from Worcester.  He has been playing for  over10 years  with the highly acclaimed Granny’s Attic, and has cultivated a deep love of traditional song. and he has come into his own as a singer and accompanist. After three albums with Granny’s Attic and countless gigs across the UK and Europe, George has been gradually carving his own path as an engaging solo performer of traditional music and has assuredly found his own voice.

George regularly performs with other musicians including Matt Quinn, and Leeds-based ceilidh band Captain Bullhead. He was in Mick Ryan’s most recent folk opera “Here At The Fair”, and guested on Pete Morton‘s 2020 album “A Golden Thread”.
