Old-timey Appalachian American Family-Band Vibes with Ballads, Country Blues, Bluegrass, and Banter, Eerie mountain modal harmonies and good-ole foot-stomping joy!


Jeni has been making music and composing with Alfred John Hickling and Tim Curtis, both of York’s “King Courgette”, since their bands shared a multi-band bill with Jeni & Billy in York back in 2010. Since then, they’ve played together throughout England. Altogether, the trio cover guitar, banjo, autoharp, mandolin, fiddle, steel guitar, ukulele, harmonica, feet, accordion, and xylophone.


Get ready for songs about everything from Jeni’s childhood in the Appalachian Coalfields to her Astra-zeneca induced meditation on socks.

Jeni will be appearing with her duo for a country-folk show on Saturday and a children's show on Sunday. She will be giving a flatfoot workshop as well. 

The Jeni Hankins duo are Jeni Hankins and Alfred John Hickling (King Courgette). Jeni has been playing with Alfred since their bands shared multi-band bill in York back in 2010. Since then, they've played together throughout Yorkshire, Lancashire, and London. Together, the duo cover guitar, banjo, mandolin, feet, and xylophone! 

JOURNEY THROUGH THE WONDARIUM WITH RED, YELLOW, AND GREEN

The Jeni Hankins duo presents a show made specifically for primary school children to introduce them to how they can invent songs on their own anytime, anywhere. A studious hippopotamus, a mountain bear, a trampoline girl, a useful piece of string, and Owl & Rabbit – the xylophone guys – will show kids how songs can come from absolutely nowhere and everywhere. With buckets of rhythm, crazy rhymes, and a boatful of characters from the Wondarium, kids will be dancing and singing all the way through this show!
