Jessie Gordon’s Approximate Folk Fringe World Festival 2024

Jessie Gordon’s Approximate Folk (JGAF for short) is a seven-piece musical ferris wheel - one that’s possibly on fire depending on the day.

Featuring Jessie's original music, there’s aching blues, rollicking country, a cheeky bit of swing, lush ballads, and some general nonsense (our favourite).
The band features Jessie’s long-time dream team rhythm section, Karl Florisson on double bass, Michael Perkins on drums, and the incredibly fast-fingered Jon Knox-Matthews on electric guitar.
In the front line, Jessie is joined by Grammy award-winning pedal steel player Lucky Oceans and virtuoso violinist Emily Gelineau. Approximate Folk is incomplete without the incomparable Mark Turner.
