She is without a doubt a folk treasure.

Mike Brocken, Folkscene, BBC Radio Merseyside

‘I’m a folksinger – this is what Folk Music sounds like.’ Gerry announced to the audience at the Liverpool Irish festival a couple of years ago; this was after they had been singing along to the choruses of her self-penned songs. They seemed mildly surprised but continued to join in happily nevertheless. And indeed her music is rooted firmly in the folk tradition, often telling the stories of everyday lives in the melting pot the was Liverpool in its maritime heyday. With titles like Cunard Yanks and I Was Born in The Holy Land, you could almost be forgiven for thinking that her music is only about Liverpool or the past, but her wry observations of everyday life in songs like Lampedusa, The Middle Aisle of Aldi and The Wonder Hornpipe, bring her repertoire bang up to date; much to the delight of her charmed audiences.
