Hannah James and the JigDoll Ensemble
Hannah James has been an unmatched force of innovation in British folk for nearly two decades. A multi-faceted performer, James’ 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. This innovative debut reinvented the notion of solo performance by combining all four disciplines simultaneously in an immersive, unforgettable song and dance experience. Utilising cutting-edge looping technology with vocal, accordion and composition skill, a multi-layered soundscape is woven onstage, providing the backdrop for James’ spellbinding fusion of traditional and wholly original dance.
