Friendly Lancashire Lass, who's as mad as a box of frogs.....
Corrie Shelley is a singer-songwriter from Lancashire, UK
Corrie is making up for lost time having only recently rediscovered the joy of songwriting after a 30 year break, and in the space of two years has released 2 albums and is currently recording her 3rd.
As a folk singer/songwriter, her songs take us on a journey of random thoughts, fuelled by copious cups of sweet tea, which transport us to 17th century scenes of Lords and Peasant girls, 18th century pirate ships ‘The Whydah' which sank 300 yrs ago, into the 19th century covering wars, mining tragedies and affairs of the heart.
"Each Song appears like a movie in my head of a story that I must tell, whether it be sad, factual or happy"
Her alluring vocals and storytelling paint vivid pictures in your mind… “As good a piece of folk rock as you’ll find anywhere, reminiscent of Prelude and Pentangle.” Liz Franklin - EdenFM & Blues and Roots Radio
" The leaf and the cane is one of the stand out albums of 2017, Corrie's unique style gives a superbly traditional feel to the songs she writes." - Brian Player - Acoustic Cafe - Why Valley Radio & Blues and Roots Radio
Corrie is joined by Les Hilton on Guitar/Harmonica and Stephen Shelley on Percussion
