‘Jenny and the Jameses’ is a Celtic and traditional folk band formed in March 2015. The band comprises singer / songwriter Jennifer Eaves on lead vocals, guitar, piano and occasionally on the upright bass, James Hall on violin and vocals, and multi-instrumentalist James Harvey on accordion, harp, flutes and vocals (and quite frankly whatever else he feels like playing on the evening).

After only two months of performing together, the band were sponsored studio time to record an album. Debut album “Untitled” was released in early September / October 2015 and since then the band have been on a whirlwind adventure in and around the Western Cape. Two sold out album launch shows at the Barleycorn music club, and Cafe Roux were followed by sold out shows all across the city as well as in small towns around the Cape.

This exposure has led to the band performing mainstage at the Knysna Celtic Festival as well as being booked for numerous other venues for the first 3 months of 2016, and have just been invited to play at the White Mountain Festival in KZN in September. The band are currently writing new material and are preparing to enter the studio towards the end of 2016 to record a second album. An overseas tour of the UK, Ireland and Italy is currently in the pipeline. ‘Jenny and the Jameses’ are a band on the rise and certainly not to be missed live.
