Shipcote & Friends are the hot Geordie country swing troupe. They have a brand new album coming out that’s named “I’m Quite Happy With That “ & this is the launch. They will play all the songs from it & are quite happy with that.
The band has been around the block a few times with leader Graham (Guitar/ Vocals) the silver foxed songwriter who perambulates in Gateshead. Jon on Double Bass lives way out in the country. He likes playing a little bit of country too. Bry (Guitar/Banjo) is the jazzy guitar master who had some early music career success then opted to opened a shop & finally Cath (Fiddle/Accordion) who’s a great musician, life teacher & lovely curly haired Lincolnshire lady. They might well allow a few more friends up on stage for this special occasion
