Price and Booking Requirements:

Geordie is available for bookings worldwide, from bars, clubs and restaurants, to concert halls and festivals. If you think Geordie would fit well in to your upcoming or future lineups then please contact us using the details above or the form at the bottom of this page. We welcome all offers or ideas.

As a general guide, for up to a one hour on-stage appearance we would expect an offer of between 300€ and 600€. Additionally, for concerts outside of Berlin, we would expect the promoter to cover travel and, where necessary, accommodation and food expenses. We are also required by law to add 7% VAT to all performance fees for bookings within Germany.

Please note that the above price range is to be seen as a guide only - rather, we ask for an honest offer depending on your budget. We understand that not everyone has the same resources within which to work when organising concerts. If for example you are a small family run venue or festival who can only offer 100€ for a concert then please don't hesitate to contact us simply because you think you can't afford it. Everyone should be able to enjoy music regardless of money, so please contact us with your offer. Similarly, if you are the booker for a large and well financed commercial festival, we would hope to receive an offer reflecting that (1.000€ for a main stage appearance for example).

Minimum Venue Requirements:

It is expected that ALL venues and event locations be fitted with ALL equipment necessary to facilitate a professional event of the highest quality (this obviously does not apply to Street/Busking Festivals). Of course we understand that the level and type of equipment necessary is dependent on the form of event (concert halls vs outdoor music festivals for example), and that it is sometimes necessary (for example for private bookings) for equipment to be hired in, however to retain artistic integrity and to enable Geordie to deliver a performance at the level expected of him, it would be only in specific situations in which he would agree to perform in locations with anything less than the following:

FOH:

 - high quality PA incl.

 - ​minimum​ 2 x 12" mid/hi range speakers

 - 1 x Sub

 

Stage Monitoring:

 - 1 x on stage monitor positioned in front of performance position 

 - 1-3 x DI (depending on the event and the number of guitars)

 - any standard microphone for speaking (eg. SM58)

House Controls:

 - high quality mixing desk

Geordie also requires cold tap water backstage, and all snacks should be fairtrade.

Of course Geordie will bring all required instruments and pedals.

Growing up in Adelaide, South Australia, Geordie Little is an innovative acoustic guitarist now based in Berlin, Germany. Having developed his unique style on the streets, and refined it on stages around the world, he combines percussive finger and lap styles to create something truly his own. Mixing percussion, chords, melodies, and harmonics simultaneously, and taking influence as much from the electronic and post-classical worlds as from his peers, Geordie creates aurally and visually entrancing compositions, redefining the boundaries of what the guitar can be.

Geordie Little is a solo acoustic finger and lap style guitarist, originally from Adelaide, South Australia, now based in Berlin, Germany. Coming from a high school background of classical and jazz guitar, Geordie started experimenting with new age fingerstyle and two hand tapping techniques around the start of 2011. Not long after, he started busking on the streets of Adelaide and began to explore more percussive techniques, eventually starting to incorporate some lap style techniques towards the end of that year.   At the start of 2012, Geordie decided to leave university in Adelaide, move to Berlin, and become a full time musician and street performer. Since then, Geordie has developed his own mix of lap and finger style guitar, incorporating percussion, chords, and melodic lines concurrently, to create intricate acoustic soundscapes that don't belong to any one style. Unconventionally choosing to stick with nylon string guitars, including a self-built 8-string flamenco, Geordie's lap style is unlike that of the current wave of steel string guitarists playing the popular 'air tap' technique, and is a much smoother, distinctly percussive, yet melodically driven adaptation.
