Louise Jordan

Hailed ‘a rising star’ by the Telegraph, Louise’s award winning debut album has been described as ‘a masterclass in songwriting’. Now touring with her second album Florilegium, Louise plays original works, musical settings of literature as well as her own unique arrangements of traditional material. Accompanying herself on piano and guitar Louise’s songs cross musical divides; influenced by acoustic, classical and folk Louise’s music appeals to all.

‘Absolutely, totally and completely, brilliant.’ 
Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2

‘Haunting and unforgettable’ The Sunday Express

Supported by
Rick Christian

Rick's style sits somewhere between folk and country, with influences ranging from Gordon Lightfoot, Tom Paxton, John Prine, and so on. I played the Corbett Theatre Loughton, in 1974, as part of a resident duo (Gardener & Christian), and over the years have played many folk clubs that have now, sadly, long gone including The General Havelock in Ilford,
remember that ?
