“Those who saw JigDoll at Shrewsbury whitnessed an elegant,
flowing transition between tunes, movement and song.

“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.

‘Hannah is an incredible musician – a beautiful singer,
inventive accordionist and her dancing is out of this world.’
‘Hannah James is a wonderfully talented, young singer,
clog dancer and accordion player. She is set for great things.
Watch this space…’
