Hannah James' JigDoll

Show Details

Presented by Hannah James

Performance date and time
Saturday, 2nd December 2017
7:30 PM

JigDoll is a new project created by Hannah James. A rarity in folk music, Hannah is a singer, musician and innovative clog dancer. Jig Doll 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. Jigdoll is the culmination of Hannah’s career thus far, allowing her to combine all of the disciplines for which she’s become known and take them to exciting new places. Much more than a concert, Jig Doll features newly-composed music in a magical setting woven around percussive dance. What’s more, there are opportunities to take part in the project through free video tutorials here on the website, as well as following Hannah’s journey through her video diary and blog.
