Jeni Hankins & Friends

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, bass, 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.

Indie folk trio “Ivan Campo” met in the city of Preston whilst studying contemporary music at the University of Central Lancashire.

Their latest track ‘The Girl Who Dreamed’, with its light and uplifting aesthetic that combines wistful guitar hooks and sweeping vocals, is the first in a string of songs planned for release in 2021 leading up to their tenth album.

Their last album ‘Season of the King’ secured the band a 4th live session on BBC 6 Music, as well as a special appearance on prime time Spanish TV programme, “Late Motiv”, performing ‘The Bloodhound and the Fox’.Wednesday December 1st
