Louise Jordan is a UK based songwriter and performer with a Masters in Human Rights and 10 years’ experience touring the UK & Europe. Self-accompanied on guitar and keyboard, Louise has released 7 recordings gaining national radio play on the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show & Radio 4.
In 2016 Louise began touring her critically acclaimed one woman show ‘No Petticoats Here’ about extraordinary women of the First World War and in 2018 created her second ACE funded touring show ‘The Hard Way: The story of working class suffragette Hannah Mitchell’. Louise's most recent show 'Florence' challenges our cultural memory of Florence Nightingale as a nurse and sheds light on Florence's work as a pioneering statistician, campaigner and reformer whose meticulous research and data representation called for government accountability and equal access to healthcare for all.
Commissioned by UK Parliament, Dreadnought South West, the V&A Museum; Groninger Museum (NL), Louise has worked with such organisations as the National Trust and University of Oxford to share her approach to opening the history books and sharing hidden women’s histories through song. Louise is grateful to have received support from Arts Council England, the English Folk Dance and Song Society and Help Musicians UK.
