The Longest Johns deliver a foot-stomping set of sea songs and folk in their own inimitable style. Featured on the BBC with Gareth Malone's 'The Choir' and a favourite at the world renowned Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival, the four piece a cappella group promise a set of hollering, stomps and all the finest whaling songs.
The Longest Johns are supported this evening by Georgia Browne and friends who will be performing traditional folk music from the British Isles and America, as well as original songs by the singer-songwriter Leo James.

 

Event 3 - Leo James and Georgia Browne

9.30pm CODA - Marden House - Admission Free

Drawing influences from past and present Blues, Bluegrass, and Folk musicians from both sides of the Atlantic, Leo has followed his passion for acoustic roots music, lap steel, ragtime, bluegrass and folk guitar. Leo’s music has been described as a soulful mix of warm husky vocals, intricate finger style guitar and shimmering slide guitar work accompanying skilfully written songs, and tasteful arrangements of traditional material.

Georgia, well known to local audiences, studied Music at Bristol University. She has played in various folk bands over the years and met Leo while performing together in the multi-instrumental roots band, Cedar Rose.
