Video: Mansfield acts at Splendour

Two Mansfield acts performed at Nottingham’s Splendour Festival this weekend and Chad was there to see them.

Punk-folk band Ferocious Dog, from Warsop, were first up on the Jagermeister stage, while singer/songwriter Georgie Rose played the Courtyard stage.

Speaking afterwards, Georgie told Chad that performing on the ncn Left Lion Courtyard stage was ‘amazing’.

The 18-year-old former Joseph Whitaker student only began playing the guitar a couple of years ago and started singing and writing songs even more recently, but she played a great set in front of a packed courtyard.

Her 50s/60s influenced sound and sultry,rich voice impressed the audience and had people dancing and bopping along.

Speaking afterwards, Georgie said: “It was so good, I really enjoyed it. I knew it was going to be good, but not that good!”

Georgie Rose has been gigging in Nottingham and further afield a lot recently but said Splendour ‘topped’ them all.

“I would love to play the main stage here,” she said. “I have a lot of work to do before I reach that but I will keep going and give it a shot. That’s my ambition.”
