Cloud-hopping tales are told with warm, haunting vocals and adorned with playful instrumentation. Jemima and her band charm you along a cathartic, spell-binding and life-affirming journey. The unique combination of strings and a rare wooden box in the form of a chromatic tongue drum creates an innovative sound which along with Jemima’s compelling voice, magically stirs the emotions to the very heart of the soul.
Jemima grew up in the highlands of Scotland; an atmospheric landscape which continues to help provide the bones of her music. She sings traditional songs and her own material, as haunting and beautiful as the land that grew her.
In February 2015 Jemima independently launched her debut EP ‘Bright Shadows’ with friends and collaborators Tim Lane (tongue drum), David Boyter (guitar/mandolin) and Susan Appelbe (cello). It has been greatly received with radio plays on stations such as Travelling Folk on BBC Radio Scotland and Late Junction on BBC Radio 3.
Guaranteed to weave magic on stage, we’re very happy that she’ll be coming down to the World Ceilidh!
