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"


NEWS - Nice piece in The Crack magazine - The Crack Magazine - Shipcote

& a great review from The Rocking Magpie

A wonderful hand- made wooden limited edition artwork poster in a style from a bygone era. Its truely a fantasic bit of art from Ocholocopress New York State.


Here's the brand new video for our album "Im Quite Happy with That "





" 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.
