Music at GMC

An Evening with Jenna Witts

Concert: Folk Concert
Date: 7.30pm, Saturday 18th May, 2013
Artist: Jenna Witts

North Devon singer-songwriter Jenna Witts is a free spirit with an effortless natural talent. Writing songs from the age of 12, she is an accomplished keyboards player and acoustic guitarist who comes to life on stage with her infectious laugh and humour – then silences everyone with her startlingly mature voice, sass, attitude and elegance, to deliver wonderfully melodic songs; inspired by the sea, surf, love and life of the coast and beyond.

Now at 24, Jenna has a wealth of recording and touring experience behind her including 5 nation-wide tours with Steve Knightley (Show of Hands) as well as performing at ‘Show Of Hands’ sell out concert at The Royal Albert Hall. Jenna has also toured with Mercury prize nominee Seth Lakeman and supported Port Iaasac’s Fisherman’s Friends at their ‘The Minack Theatre’ open air concerts. She’s also played alongside other musicians including Newton Faulkner, The Noisettes, Nerina Pallot, Martin Simpson, Boo Hewerdine, Martyn Joseph, and Amy Wadge. Jenna has most recently supported ELKIE BROOKS to a ‘sold out’ Queen’s Theatre in aid of Children’s Hospice South West.

Jenna’s first album ‘Barefoot and Eager’ attracted a string of accolades and national airplay and was named one of the Financial Times Top 10 world albums of 2007. Her second album ‘Brother’ has also received great critical acclaim and airplay on Radio 2. It showcases her talent as one of the most up and coming young singer songwriters in the UK. With an increasing batch of new songs being aired at her shows – she is looking forward to embarking on a brand new album.

We were delighted to welcome Jenna to Music at GMC for a fantastic gig!
