Amazing….the kind of thing that gives modern folk a good name” Zeitgeist
Jennifer’s songwriting draws on her Americana influences but remains undeniably English in it’s story-telling. A multi-instrumentalist, Jennifer sings, plays harp, guitar and banjo and performs with her trio – cellist Bethany Porter (Eliza Carthy Band, Newton Faulkner) and guitarist and accordionist, Mike Cosgrave (Jackie Oates, Jackie Leven).
Jennifer and her trio are recording her third solo album at Real World Studios to be released in June 2014. With the combination of great musicianship and songs that inspire a genuine emotional connection, this is first class contemporary folk.

With a life-long passion for real song-craft, a beautifully natural and engaging singing voice, and her considerable instrumental skills on the lever harp and guitar, Jennifer’s live performances are gaining her a growing following across the UK and beyond.
Jennifer’s latest album was produced by highly acclaimed songwriter Boo Hewerdine, and also features guest vocals from Eddi Reader & Darrell Scott (Robert Plant’s Band of Joy). The vivid storytelling, beautiful imagery and infectious melodies on Merry Go Round’ have earned her excellent reviews, national airplay and a live session on BBC Radio 2 with the legendary Bob Harris.
