Don’t miss George... You’ll regret it... Wonderful singer, songwriter, musician and the funniest comic on this planet.
Blaydon Races Festival
George Welch is a North East institution and one of the finest entertainers to come out of Tyneside. As well as being a wonderful comedian he has a voice of astonishing richness... ‘molasses for your ears’. As a guitarist he has long been sought after, both as a soloist and as an accompanist, sharing the stage with such luminaries as Sean MacGuire. As one half of the legendary Cheap Sunglasses Serenaders he conquered the national comedy circuit, and now as a soloist his shows are among the most popular in the North East, appreciated not just by lovers of folk music, but anyone looking for a fun and entertaining night out.
Saltburn Folk Festival
George has a great fund of songs, sometimes a bit quirky, and a rich mellow voice. He's as daft as a brush and his humour sometimes belies the fact that he's a very talented guitarist.
The inimitable George, the man everybody loves to love,
Davy lamp Folk Club
George Welch has a laid back style and wacky sense of humour oft disguising his musical skills and mellow vocal tones. He’s a proud Tynesider that is often reflected in the tunes and songs he performs.
Bishop Auckland Town Hall Music Events
George Welch is a musician, singer, artist, and comedian all squeezed into a giant frame. His material can range from tunes and songs from his native Tyneside that raise the hairs on the back of your neck to outrageous stories that have the tears rolling down the cheeks. He will almost certainly mention his latest passion, the ukulele.
Sedgefield Folk Festival
George Welch was a pleasure to behold, his soft humour, gentle manner, fine singing and playing make him too, a Geordie Folk Legend!
