One of the best singer- songwriters Merseyside has to offer, Gerry’s colourful, Liverpool and Irish roots make her a wonderful performer, writer and recording artist of rich, contemporary folk music.
Graduating from the folk clubs in the seventies, Gerry dipped into the local music scene, playing in three local bands before a lifelong love of folk music brought her back onto the folk scene. Her first serious solo venture into recording is the EP My Brother’s Shoes, which contains four of her self penned songs about war. It was released last November, and the first pressing sold out after receiving radio play both on Radio Merseyside and in the US.
Her Current album Rivercityology will be launched in early March and it contains eight of her own songs about life in the city as well as one of the traditional songs which has proved popular at her public performances. With song titles such as Cunard Yanks , Riverside Drive , The Dockers’ Pen and The Liverpool Irish, the recording certainly has a strong of local flavor and is unmistakably Liverpudlian in atmosphere.
Gerry is a musician with a great voice who is in demand at festivals and live venues across Merseyside and beyond, Her appeal is growing as her own songs and stories are played out in her very popular solo performances and recordings.
