A rarity in folk music, Hannah James is a singer, musician and innovative clog dancer. Her new solo project, Jig Doll combines all of these disciplines in a beautiful new show exploring the life of the travelling player: sometimes exotic, sometimes frightening.
Jig Doll 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.
Jig Doll, the live show, uses newly-composed music and innovative stage techniques to weave a magical atmosphere around percussive dance. Hannah’s own dynamic rhythms become the centre-piece of the music through a specially designed dance platform, incorporating a range of sounds and surfaces, which takes instrumental foot percussion to a new level.
