Music plays a huge part in many OVs lives at school and OV George Sansome (Br 11-13) is no exception. George started singing and playing in his own folk band, ‘Granny’s Attic’, back in 2009 and, since then, the band has gone from strength to strength.
George, pictured centre, alongside secondary school friends Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne and Lewis Wood together make up the folk trio who play the tradition with verve, energy and their own inimitable style. They have played at clubs and festivals up and down the country, and have been heralded for their lively performances and maturity beyond their years in their delivery and selection of traditional songs.
Ten years later, ‘Granny’s Attic’ are celebrating their anniversary back where it all started, in Worcester. The anniversary concert will be in Huntingdon Hall on Saturday 19th October and to coincide with this celebration, they have also just released a new album, ‘Wheels of the World’.
