Claudia Schwab and Hannah James Double Album release

Written by conall. Posted in Blues'n'Jazz


Claudia Schwab is an Ireland based, originally Austrian fiddle player/composer/yodeller. Stomping rhythms, fiery reels, consoling Indian raags and funk-beat yodelling abound in Claudia’s blend of Irish, Indian, Swedish and Eastern European folk music styles overlaid with Austrian yodelling. Described as ‘one of the most creative artists on the Irish music scene today‘ (Dr. Mel Mercier – Irish World Academy), Claudia’s debut album Amber Sands (2014) features regularly on Irish national radio and has received impressive reviews by magazines such as FATEA, Folkworld and Songlines. A brand new EP, ‘Attic Mornings’ will be released in October this year.


Alongside her own solo project, Claudia works with a range of internationally renowned artists. Current projects include collaborations with Austrian string-trio Netnakisum (AUT), German Jazz legend Matthias Schriefl, Kate in the Kettle Quintet with Scottish fiddle-singer Kate Young and the Cork Gamelan Ensemble.


“Some albums take you on a journey; ‘Amber Sands’ is like taking a year off, and making your way around the world.” – Dan Hegarty, RTE 2FM


Hannah James 

 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.
