Event description

Description

Join Sheffield singer-songwriter Banjo Jen, the “all-singin’, all-dancin’, badass banjo-pickin’ girl”. Using banjo as the lead instrument for her original songs, weaving clever lyrics with catchy melodies, and incorporating Appalachian step-dancing and Yorkshire charm and humour into her sets, she’s beginning to make waves on the UK Americana and folk scenes. Her debut EP ‘Lost & Found’ was released in 2018, reviewed by Maverick magazine as ‘smart and sassy…a distinctly promising debut’. She was also selected twice to represent the Americana Music Association UK at Red Rooster festival and The Long Road festival in 2018. Playing the traditional ‘frailing’ style of banjo, accompanied by punchy double bass, she is influenced by aspects of folk, country, blues and ‘old-time’ music - though she doesn't stick to any particular tradition and makes her own rules up as she goes along! This, combined with a skill for finding a great melody and an interesting story, makes for unique and highly original songs; songs of sinning and straying, of characters and conflicts, of running from the law and of running from yourself. As the one and only Dolly Parton says, ‘We're all just a bunch of sinners, but we do the best we can’. Between the well-crafted songs, the percussive step-dancing and the Yorkshire ‘gift of the gab’, Banjo Jen’s refreshingly original act is always guaranteed to entertain. There’s a lot more to come from this banjo-pickin’ girl, so grab yer cowboy boots and come along for the ride!

With bubbles, percussion, props and informal introductions, this is a fun and informal gig for adults and their children aged 0-3 (siblings welcome).
