Jane Thompson has been charming audiences for years in her bands Blackwood, The Rainmakers and Songs With Legs, singing songs addressing matters of the heart and issues of our time; playing whistle, accordion and maracas. Jane is now delighted to be launching her debut solo album ‘Here’, bringing her warmth of style, pure vocals and award-winning songwriting to the fore… This weekend she will be accompanied by great playing and vocal harmonies from James Rigby (guitar, mandolin) and Jim Green (guitar)… “Wow. It is a fantastic album. I am gobsmacked. I just love it. Great songs, arrangements, playing and of course, your beautiful singing” (Dave O’Neill, former Artistic Director, National Folk Festival)
Jane and James will also be leading the Festival Choir – come and sing with them on Saturday and Sunday, then take to the stage on Monday morning!
