Jane Thompson is delighted to announce the birth of her debut solo album ‘Here’.  A collection of 9 original songs, with additional songs from the exquisite writing of Michael Kennedy, the wonderful Judy Small and Iris Dement, this album is produced by Kate Burke. Featuring Kate’s brilliant musicianship, guitar and fiddle playing, as well as that of James Rigby, Liz Frencham, Justin Marshall, Cathy English, Maggie and Elsie Rigby and Wendy Rowlands, it is already receiving excellent reviews…. “I have to say "wow". It is a fantastic album. I am gob-smacked. I just love it. Great songs, arrangements, playing and of course, your beautiful singing. It's going to be on high rotation around here for quite a while.”  Dave O’Neill, former Artistic Director, National Folk Festival
