Lady Georgianna, Girl Band Extraordinaire

Every once in a while I come across something that is too delightful not to share–and perhaps only for diehard 18th century fans! 

Lady Georgianna is a period tribute band made up of three members: a mezzo soprano, a harpsichordist, and a cellist.  Their mission is to give their audience a “Georgian experience” that one might get from, say, visiting Vauxhall or Ranelagh.  As they often perform in parks, dressed in costumes with period trumpery such as feathers and ribbons, it might just be the closest one can get to reliving the pleasure garden experience.  Although they are currently on tour, they do perform other themed shows such as Georgianna’s Ghostly Adventures and–so exciting if you are taking part in the Duchess of Devonshire’s Gossip Blog group discussion on Evelina– Ladies of Misrule with readings from Burney’s novel.

If you live in the UK, my dears, you are in luck!  They do have upcoming tour dates if you’ve a mind to venture back in time and spend an afternoon in Georgian style. I’ll be here, stateside, watching the videos.

  1. Oh excellent – they are playing in Bristol in September! I’ll definitely go and report back (with lots of photographs, naturally!)! I might be going to the Jane Austen Festival as well. 🙂
