Special Musical Performance 
We are pleased to welcome Jenny & The James to our agenda
Original Celtic folk duo ‘Jenny & the James’ from Cape Town South Africa are two parts of the original ‘Jenny and the Jameses trio’’.
Jennifer Eaves (guitar & vocals) and James Hall (fiddle & vocals) have been performing together for the past 5 years in and around
South Africa, and more recently have enjoyed performing in the Netherlands & Scotland. Performing a mixture of original folk music
combined with Celtic tunes, this duo crafts a show that takes the listener on a journey through heart felt lyrics & foot tapping reels.
