Jenny & the Jameses are a Celtic folk trio from Cape Town. The trio comprises Jennifer Eaves on vocals and guitar, James Hall on violin and vocals, and James Harvey on accordion and vocals.
With two albums under their belt, the trio has toured South Africa extensively, and performed in Amsterdam on the Holland leg of Johnny Clegg’s world tour and the Edinburgh Fringe.
Jenny & the Jameses are one of the most fun and refreshingly honest acoustic bands in South African and most certainly not one to be missed live.
Jenny & the Jameses are an Original Celtic folk band formed in March 2015 from South Africa. The band comprises Jennifer Eaves on vocals, guitar and piano, James Hall on violin and vocals, and multi-instrumentalist James Harvey on accordion, harp, bouzouki and vocals (and whatever else he feels like playing on the evening).
The band’s debut album, Untitled, was released in early September/October 2015 and since then the band has been on a whirlwind adventure in and around South Africa. After a year of touring their debut album and composing new material the band found themselves in studio again recording their second album, Fallen Tree, which was released in November 2017. The band then embarked on a tour to Holland and were invited to perform as opening act on the Holland leg of Johnny Clegg’s world tour.
2019 brought new and exciting adventures as the trio were invited to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where they were enthusiastically received with sold out theatre shows.
During 2020’s Lockdown, the show went on. The band adapted to online performances, submitting a performance for the Remembering Bunting Festival in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and the group have persevered to continue playing gigs and making sure Live Music stays alive and well in Cape Town and surrounds.
Some of the band’s highlights have been playing at the Cape Town Folk and Acoustic festival, the Knysna Celtic festival, the White Mountain Festival, the Taste of Darling Festival, the Darling Beer Festival, and of course, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The band is highly adaptable and enjoys venues both big and small, quirky or straight-laced, local or international.
Jenny & the Jameses are “one of the most fun and refreshingly honest bands on the circuit and most certainly not to be missed live.”
