Join Hannah James as she teaches some of her favourite songs. This workshop will focus on learning, arranging and harmonising some great traditional songs. Suitable for singers aged 9 – 18 of all abilities. No experience necessary.
Hannah James has emerged as one of the most imaginative and adventurous artists on the folk scene. First coming to national attention as accordion player and singer with the band Kerfuffle, she was in an acclaimed duo with Bellowhead’s Sam Sweeney, is a member of female vocal harmony trio Lady Maisery, and has worked with folk legend Maddy Prior in the trio 3 for Joy.
In recent years, Hannah has been one of the key figures in the revival of interest in English clog. Her first solo work, JigDoll has been lauded by both audiences and critics for its innovative approach. It combines music, dance and song as one seamless discipline. She was a featured dancer in the Demon Barber Road Show, whose production of Time Gentlemen Please (which became The Lock In) showcased her extraordinary dance and choreography skills. And has recently performed with international artist, Seasick Steve.
All tickets can be booked through Queen’s Hall Arts Centre, Hexham.
