9 December 2023 6:00 pm - 8:15 pm Ellington Jazz Club

Brace yourselves for a night of pure musical magic and be a part of history at Jessie Gordon’s Approximate Folk Live Album Recording.

This extraordinary musical journey has been years in the making; a true labor of love. Jessie’s original music odyssey began at The Ellington back in 2016, so it’s only fitting that she’s returning to her musical home for her first ever live solo album.

Jessie Gordon’s Approximate Folk (JGAF for short) is a seven piece musical ferris wheel – one that’s possibly on fire depending on the day. The band features Jessie’s long-time dream team rhythm section Karl Florisson on double bass and Michael Perkins on drums, as well as the incredibly fast-fingered Jon Knox-Matthews on electric guitar. In the front line Jessie is joined by Grammy award winning pedal steel player Lucky Oceans and virtuoso violinist Emily Gelineau. Approximate Folk is incomplete without Jessie’s best friend and co-collaborator in all sorts of nonsense, musical and other, the incomparable Mark Turner

Join us for a one-of-a-kind LIVE RECORDING experience. Jessie and her musical cohorts will grace the stage with a single set of her freshest original compositions, including the likes of Let Me Drift, Phoenix, Quit the Band and Darling One.

Your presence at this performance isn’t just a ticket to musical brilliance, it’s an investment in the creation of this live album. By joining us, you’re not only treating your senses to a night of beautiful music but also championing the cause of live, original music right here in Perth.

So, dust off your finest attire and let the newly crafted melodies of Jessie Gordon’s Approximate Folk sweep you away on a journey like no other. Thank you for supporting live original music in Perth!
