Hannah James and Sam Sweeney ventured out as a duo after nine years with their band, Kerfuffle, who made five albums and appeared at festivals throughout the U.K. and abroad. Kerfuffle played their last official gig at Shrewsbury Folk Festival in 2010 to pursue separate musical careers, but still tour their very successful Midwinter show ‘Lighten the Dark’ in December each year.
Hannah is a member of Lady Maisery, a vocal harmony trio formed with Hazel Askew (The Askew Sisters) and Rowan Rheingans (Fidola). Inspired by folk singing traditions of the UK and northern Europe, Lady Maisery sing songs and ballads both unaccompanied and with backing from their combined instrumental talents on accordion, harp and fiddle.
Hannah was also a member of accordion trio, Hell Said the Duchess with Karen Tweed and Becky Price.
2012 was a busy year. Hannah was invited to join Maddy Prior and Giles Lewin, resulting in two tours and an album, ‘3 for Joy’, toured again in 2013 at a Spring tour is planned for 2014.
In the Summer 2013 Hannah was involved in a project in Canada with Leonard Podolak (The Duhks) and Matt Gordon (Fiddle Puppets) where she had the opportunity to learn appalachian clogging.
She also formed a duo with Alastair Vannan, Alastair is an archaeologist and historical researcher by profession. He combines these vocations by undertaking research into the historical context of folksong, which has been published in the Folk Music Journal of the English Folk Dance and Song Society. Together, Hannah and Alastair perform a charming and interesting selection of songs.
