In 2012 Georgia Lewis and her trio released her self-titled 5-track EP. Since then they have performed at various folk clubs and festivals in the south of England and received air-play on local and internet radio stations including the esteemed ‘Mike Harding’s Folk Show’. In 2015 Georgia won ‘The Future of Young Folk Award’ at Bromyard Folk Festival. She plays whistles, accordion, piano, guitar, sings and has been seen tapping out various traditional dancing styles.

The Bird Who Sings Freedom is the debut album by Georgia, released July 2017.

Well-worn traditional songs sit alongside two originals, an A.E. Housman poem and, opening the album, a setting of the words of Maya Angelou. Throughout, Georgia seeks timeless themes in old words. Stories of love, loss, conflict and betrayal.

Produced by Lewis with Josh Clark (Kate Rusby’s Life In A Paper Boat), the album features Evan Carson (bodhrán) and Tom Sweeney (bass) alongside longtime bandmates Felix Miller (guitar) and Rowan Piggott (fiddle).

The Bird Who Sings Freedom is a glorious cocktail of modern folk influences, a potent statement of intent and a first glimpse at a burgeoning talent who looks set to put her stamp on English folk music.
