About this event

Accomplished guitarist and vocalist Mark Turner and jazz/blues singer Jessie Gordon have known each other for many years since he was a mere slip of a 12-year-old and she was a willowy redhead avoiding the sun at all opportunities. Over 20 years of friendship have ensued, with music as the cornerstone of their lives. This show is improvised, with songs chosen by the audience, some old favourites, and some created on the spot. After winning both the 2019 and 2020 FRINGE WORLD Weekly Music Awards, Jessie and Mark also toured the show through Germany and Spain. Having spent the last two years writing new songs and gazing longingly out the window, they return to present some new original tunes and wonderful old duets. 

“This relationship... is magnetic to behold” ★★★★½ Fringefeed, 2019

Presented by:
Jessie Gordon

Jessie is a very sun-shy Perth red-headed singer and songwriter who brings her love of old-world roots music into the 21st Century. She has toured Australia, America, South East Asia, Germany, France, Spain, Poland, and the UK. She is also a 20-time FRINGE WORLD Music and Cabaret Award winner. Her original music is a combination of soulful blues, harmonic gospel, and joyful swinging country.

She has also recorded nine albums, including two with Mark Turner (Best Friends 2019 and Live at Kidogo 2021), an original album (A Work of Friction 2018), two intercontinental albums entitled Berlin Nights (2017) and Unknowable Journey (2020) with Berlin band Ginger Blues, the latter of which won the German Blues Award for 2020, and most recently the eponymous Sassafras (2021).
