Gloria Jeffries

Featured support:
Jan Porter and her Ensemble

Gloria Jeffries is a performer unlike any other - a phenomenal guitarist, flute player and singer who has taken a challenging leap into fairly uncharted seas. There have been plenty of transgender artists in music before, but not many on the folk scene. The folk world has proved welcoming.

Gloria released a CD in 2011 Living For Me which was quietly well-received, and under another guise has produced about 20 albums previously, including setting of poems by John Clare and a CD of instrumental acoustic guitar music.

Gloria is booked regularly at Otley Folk Festival and appears at various local folk clubs. She appeared last year for the first time at Headingley Literature Festival, and played in Pete Morton's band for his Chaucer experience at Festival On The Edge.

Gloria's persona is not simply a means to shake people up, but an exploration of creativity. But her repertoire still includes a large amount of traditional folk music, as well as original material.

Support tonight from Jan Porter and her Ensemble

Not exactly sure who is in this version of the Ensemble: Janet Porter is an extremely talented musician with many different facets surrounded by a seemingly endless array of other talented musicians with many genres in their repertoire.

5 a year from 1st January. That gives you 1 off concert tickets, and you can get more involved with running the club too if you are interested.

Plenty of Topic regulars play and listen at the Castle Hotel in Bradford on Fridays - why not join them? JJuly 21 Jim Jarrett; July 28 Nigel Garry Broadbent
