Bookings and Price:

I am available for bookings worldwide and offer either,

 - the set program "Geordie Little Live", available in both 60 and 90 minute versions,

 - or I can adjust the program to fit the individual venue or event requirements.

All offers or ideas are welcome.

As a guide, an on-stage appearance of up to 90 minutes usually costs between 300€ and 600€, plus travel, accommodation and food expenses and 7% Mwst in Germany. BUT, this is a guide only - Art is for everyone and money should not be the reason a concert doesn't take place - I simply ask for an honest offer depending on your budget! If you are a small family run event and can only afford 100€, that's fine. If you are a massive corporate run festival with an endless budget however, then I would also expect that to be reflected in your offer.

Minimum Venue Requirements:

It is expected that ALL venues and event locations be fitted with the equipment necessary to facilitate a professional event. Of course I understand that the level and type of equipment necessary is dependent on the form of event, however for artistic integrity and to enable a performance at the level expected of me, I would generally expect the following as a bare minimum:

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 x DI 

 - any standard microphone with stand for speaking (eg. SM58)

House Controls:

 - high quality mixing desk

I also require cold tap water backstage, and all snacks should be fairtrade and bio where possible.

Of course I 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.  

Akustik Gitarre Magazine (issue 6, 2020):

"His melodic and harmonic ingenuity is second to none; Even longer or meditative pieces by the Australian never lose tension thanks to constantly new catchy themes. And he quite rightly calls himself a 'composer' - his works are rigorously worked through, have mood and structure and never offend the listener by simply attempting any random pile of cheap guitar tricks or rolling out a groove that has been found." (translated from German)

 

Adam Morkus - Prague International Guitar Night:

"Geordie is just a safe bet - master of his craft, the king of his own genre. We had an amazing time at the sold out gig in Prague/EU. "
