What's On > JigDoll - Hannah James
A rarity in folk music, Hannah is a singer, musician and innovative clog dancer. JigDoll combines all of these disciplines in a beautiful new show exploring the life of the travelling player: sometimes exotic, sometimes frightening, it’s a world where home changes daily, and the only touchstones are the skills you carry with you, and the people you meet on the way.
“Those who saw JigDoll at Shrewsbury whitnessed an elegant,
flowing transition between tunes, movement and song.
Loops of accordion melody were left to play by themselves,
augmented by feet-made percussive sounds
that repeated seemingly of their own will.
It was Beautiful and Baffling” – Froots Magazine
“This is a show I could take my non-folky friends to
with complete confidence, and without fear
of it being dismissed as just ‘A good laugh’ at the end.
It’s brilliant, and it needed to happen.” – Tom Kitching
‘Hannah is an incredible musician – a beautiful singer,
inventive accordionist and her dancing is out of this world.’- Jon Boden
