Wayward Jane

Thu 11 Jul 2024

Wayward Jane’s music is a modern, transatlantic interpretation of American
folk and Old Time traditions, blending roots music with fresh arrangements
and original compositions. Their rich sound features fiddle, clawhammer
banjo, double bass, guitar, wooden flute and close vocal harmonies.

Wayward’s live shows have a joyful energy, expressing the fine musicianship and playful chemistry of the band members.

Ranging in mood from highoctane, toe-tapping tunes to tender and soulful songs, Wayward Jane tend to leave audiences with a glow in their hearts. Wayward Jane have appeared together at folk clubs and festivals across the land, touring extensively in the UK and Ireland. They were recently featured live in session on BBC Radio Scotland’s Travelling Folk where Bruce MacGregor remarked “they’re just that bit different from anything else happening in Scotland!” The band are busy members of the Edinburgh traditional music scene, playing in bands such as Brothers Gillespie, Dowally and Michael Starkey & Hannah Read.

They have released two albums – “Wayward Jane” and “Old Train”, and will be releasing a third later this year. “Wayward Jane weaves a gorgeous tapestry of heart wrenching vocals and tasteful, informed instrumentation. I could listen to these guys all day!”
