Admin

Gecko's playful story-songs will take you on a journey via ignored characters in Italian renaissance paintings, pig outlaws and tooth fairy admin. Expect wit and warmth from the Glastonbury festival regular, fresh from appearing on the BAFTA-winning Sky TV show Life and Rhymes. Gecko has shared bills with the likes of Tim Minchin, Ed Sheeran and Billy Bragg. 'Raising a laugh and a lump in the throat all at once is a good trick - possibly the best. Gecko makes it look easy' **** (BroadwayBaby.com). 'He's a work of art' (Benjamin Zephaniah).

Interview with singer-storyteller Gecko

"Being a part of a festival that is so sprawling and has such variety is an inspiring thing. Also, the ups and downs of it forge a bond with your fellow performers like no other."
