Abigail Seabrook studied Psychology at the University of Birmingham before pursuing music as a singer and songwriter in a variety of original rock bands. Taking singing lessons with Pauline Alder (with whom she still works) enabled her to broaden her musical horizons to include classical, early music and musical theatre. Alongside her private singing studies, Abigail has also attended part time courses at Birmingham Conservatoire and Birmingham School of Acting. She currently performs with 18th century costumed trio “Lady Georgianna” and gypsy jazz band “Playing Django”
As a songwriter, Abigail has been involved in a musical theatre production about the life of Jane Austen, which was performed at the Artrix theatre in Bromsgrove. She also co writes with dance producer Ian Wallman.
As well as performing, Abigail works as a community musician, devising and running workshops that engage a variety of people in music-making. She often involves other disciplines in participatory arts projects, such as drama, art and craft. She is active in the Musician’s Union, and since 2007 has been a member of the Musician’s Union Regional Committee (Midlands) and a Musician’s Union Learning Representative.
