“nothing short of stunning” Jim Lee, Dirty Linen USA
“..I can't put it plainer - they really are that special.” David Kidman, NetRhythms
“…everything one expects from Grace Notes – great songs, meticulously selected, beautifully sung, exquisitely arranged, perfectly programmed.” Nigel Schofield, Free Reed
Grace Notes are also available to perform their special presentation:
A Woman's Work A presentation of songs about women's work through time. Grace Notes explore female occupations that are represented in traditional and contemporary material, from the C17th to the present day
You will hear songs and stories that span five centuries, from a fifteenth century Queen to a reluctant office-worker in the 21st century; and meet mothers, migrants, millworkers....laundry lasses, lace-makers and lavender girls...buffers and doffers and costers.
"Maids may sit still, go or run but a woman's work is never done"
All songs are arranged in harmony, a cappella and accompanied, with Grace Notes' trademark flair and artistry
