Banjo Jen and accordion player El Heneghan introduce us to the musical world of Americana including folk, country, bluegrass and even some Appalachian step-dancing! And to round off the morning, why not stay at Cutlery Works and have some Nashville-style chicken from Jailbird or an American deli sandwich from Rad Rude?
With songs, dancing, listening as well as bubbles, percussion, props and informal introductions, this is a fun and informal gig for adults and their 0-5 year-old children.
Sheffield-based Banjo Jen is an unlikely musician. A designer and a teacher by training, she cut her teeth in workshops and classrooms, not bar rooms (well, she drank in the bar rooms… but didn’t play music!). But when she picked up a banjo at the tender age of (well, we’ll not mention that), something just clicked. After all she thought, all the best folks play banjo (Dolly Parton, Billy Connolly, Kermit the Frog…). Then the songs just started tumbling out, and before she knew it, she was known as ‘Banjo Jen’ and was performing original songs in front of audiences. https://www.banjojen.com
