The previous few days have been a little bit of a surreal blur to me.
I have been a fan of Canadian Jane Siberry’s music for around 15 years now, and when I last saw her she had relinquished all of her worldly possessions, including her name, and disappeared somewhere into deepest Europe. Or so the rumours go.
Only now she’s back and touring the world playing small and intimate gigs in interesting and unusual places. Emu farms, beach houses, front rooms. You get the idea. And also Fulneck Moravian Village, which is where I was fortunate enough to document her 3 day stay, where she gave 2 performances and provided musical workshops for the schoolchildren. Oh and I got to meet her gorgeous new puppy, Gwyllym, who she’d picked up on her travels.
Jane is a beautiful and enlightened soul and I would like to thank her for sharing her spirit and energy with us. Thanks also must go to Chris Hobbs, the organiser, who was kind enough to take me along for the ride.
Here’s a little slideshow of the events.
