Shipcote and Friends: Gentle geordie country swing

Hiya ••• We are Shipcote & Friends -


A late surprise addition to the billing was Shipcote & Friends. While their music has a jazzy, old-time flavour and sound, the songs relate to contemporary life – as observed by songwriter Graham ‘Shipcote’ . Warm, positive and uplifting, it was just what was needed –Live review -Chronicle May 17 (Sage Gateshead supporting Davina & The Vagabonds)

Shipcote & Friends music’s simply played and with many of the songs dashed in humour, and sang in a warm relaxed fashion, what more could one wish for. Live Review Cluny2 - May17
