The Three Belles

These three lovely ladies are making new music in the old-fashioned way. Based in Woking, Surrey, and inspired by the Andrews Sisters and 1940s vintage, Betty (blonde), Dorothy (brunette) and Gail (redhead) are a vocal trio that celebrate the age of sophistication and swing.

Having formed as part of an assignment for their Creative and Performing Arts course at Portsmouth University, the Three Belles decided to take their show on the road after graduation, and have since travelled the length and breadth of the UK as professional singers and performers. Their sweet harmonies and toe-tapping style capture the essence of an era perfectly, and Betty, Dorothy and Gail have gotten young and old alike out of their seats and swingin’ all the way from Cornwall to Cumbria.

As well as performing, the Three Belles also plan and produce their own 1940s-inspired productions and events, most recently choreographing the sell-out swing experience “In The Mood” at Portsmouth and St Ives Guildhalls.

About Georgie Beardmore

I’m Georgie, a Creative Writing masters student at the University of Sheffield. As might be expected from someone who studies creative writing, I love writing (I write a lot -seriously, a lot), and write a variety of fiction and non-fiction things for various online and printed publications. As well as fiction, I most enjoy writing about music, the arts and student living, but I've also written things about living abroad, travel and local projects and events, as well as waffling about whatever takes my fancy on my blog. I am also heavily involved in student radio; I've been part of Forge Radio (the University of Sheffield's student radio station) for nearly four years now, helping run the station over the last two first as Secretary and then as Assistant Station Manager. Every week I present my own weekly specialist folk music show 'What The Folk?' (the show is as pun-filled as its name would suggest), on which I aim to promote new and exciting folk musicians from across the UK, and this year I've also been a part of organising some gigs as part of 'Forge Presents...', Forge Radio's series of live music events. I'm incredibly passionate about both music and the arts, and so am really excited to be part of the Born In Britain campaign and the opportunity to showcase the wealth of talent both Sheffield and the UK has to offer.
