Hannah James has been an unmatched force of innovation in British folk for nearly two decades. A multi-faceted performer, her virtuosic talent spans all her four disciplines: singer, accordionist, composer and clog dancer. She has amassed an international touring career, multiple award nominations, and credits in some of Britain’s most respected folk projects, including Lady Maisery and Songs of Separation.
In 2015, James introduced her one-woman show, JigDoll. Utilising cutting-edge looping technology with vocal, accordion and composition skill, a multi-layered soundscape was woven onstage, providing the backdrop for James’ spellbinding fusion of traditional and wholly original dance. Now the JigDoll Ensemble sees James enhanced by three masters of their instrument, perfectly articulating James’ visionary ideas for song, tune and dance.
