Granny's Attic

George plays alongside Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne (melodeon, anglo concertina, vocals) and Lewis Wood (violin, vocals) in English trad folk trio Granny’s Attic, who have honed their skills touring the UK and Europe since 2009. They are much loved by audiences up and down the country, with bookings everywhere from Cambridge Folk Festival to Cecil Sharp House, and live performances on BBC Radio 2 and Radio 3.

The trio have been heralded for their lively performances and skilled delivery of traditional material, playing with verve, energy and their own inimitable style. Though grounded in tradition, they are keen to push new boundaries by exploring fresh approaches and writing their own compositions.

One of the most exciting and accomplished English folk acts on the scene right now.

George Sansome and Matt Quinn

George and Matt - Will Killen
Folk London
In an exciting collaboration between two leading lights of their generation of traditional singers, George has joined with Matt Quinn (Dovetail Trio) to sing traditional folk songs from the British Isles, both unaccompanied, and accompanied by mandolin and guitar. Their well-blended voices and close harmonies create a warm, enthralling sound and their English folk instrumental styles complement each other perfectly. Their debut album, Sheffield Park, was released in 2023.

Queer Folk // Sophie Crawford and George Sansome

Founded by Sophie Crawford and George Sansome, Queer Folk works to highlight LGBTQIA+ history and narratives buried in the archives, as well as to amplify LGBTQIA+ artists today. The organisation now encompasses a network of musicians, dancers, songwriters, music fans, and like-minded LGBTQIA+ people.

Through residencies at the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library, at the Glasshouse International Centre for Music, and with Britten Pears Arts, Sophie and George found a wealth of queer folk songs and material ripe to be queered. They often get together to perform these songs, give talks, and lead workshops on queer folk music.

Queer Folk also run regular Queer Ceilidh Dance Parties at Cecil Sharp House in London, a monthly radio show at Voices Radio, and often host workshops, concerts, and LGBTQIA+ artist showcases.
