Geri Van Essen
Geri van Essen is an East London based singer who started off singing in children’s choirs in the Netherlands long before she discovered the joys of singing folk songs accompanied by guitar or banjo. The idea of recording some of her favourite American folk songs as well as her own compositions was conceived after moving to London.
