Three years on from her iconic ReVoice! Festival and following the success of new release, Songbook, award-winning vocalist/lyricist, Georgia Mancio, once again flexes her multi-lateral creativity with a new series of tantalising collaborations.
In a fitting finale to this inaugural Hang, Georgia reunites with much cherished vocal star, Liane Carroll, to reprise Mr & Mrs. The show, formed for a very short notice performance at the club last year, instantly captured everyone’s imagination as Liane and Georgia are joined by their partners in life and music for a fun, fearless and life-affirming celebration of love and loss.
