CANADA: Woods Music and Dance Camp, Acoustic Harvest,
What a night we had, thanks to everyone who came out and to Biscuits n' Gravy who joined me for a few songs on the spot and delivered a beautiful opening set! And thanks to TwickFolk for their constancy in supporting the arts!
I am RIDICULOUSLY excited about this concert! Biscuits n’ Gravy shared the evening with me when I last played TWICKFOLK and our music went together like a dream, like we really were back home at Mawmaw’s sitting in the old cabin and playing the music that grew up in the mountains! NOT TO BE MISSED.

The folks at Revolution Records are just plain GREAT! I went in there just after they opened months ago and somehow I ended up flatfoot dancing in the store . . . you know me . . . and then I found a record on which banjo-maker Dave Stacey played back in the 1980s. I got to telling them how I have a Dave Stacey banjo which I bought in an auction up in Lancashire. Then, we started talking about instruments and I mentioned that I played the sewing machine. Well, that was it! We decided there ought be a concert at the record shop!
As I said, they are selling tickets fast at the shop even though the concert is several months away, so get in touch with me if you’d like to come. There is no way to buy tickets online, just in person in the shop or from me (PayPal or BACS).

Jeni has been making music and composing with Alfred John Hickling 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, they cover guitar, banjo, autoharp, mandolin, feet, mandocello, and harmony singing.
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.
