Award-winning vocalist, lyricist and producer, Georgia Mancio, returns with her second Hang – a series of stunning bespoke collaborations and new writing featuring the cream of the UK’s jazz, latin and improvised music scenes in one of Europe’s most iconic venues.
From last year’s landmark recording, Songbook, with co-writer Alan Broadbent and their subsequent performances in Europe and the US (including Ronnie Scott’s and Rochester International Jazz Festival, NY) to her iconic ReVoice! Festival, work with luminaries Ian Shaw, Liane Carroll, Bobby McFerrin and Kate Williams, to nominations in the Urban Music, Parliamentary and British Jazz Awards, Georgia is an artist of boundless creativity and dedication in constant evolution.
2018 is also Georgia’s 18th anniversary as a professional musician. To mark this joyous coming of age she has crafted 4 unique shows:
