Jenny McCormick is a performer who seems able to move between the traditional folk clubs and the new folk and acoustic scene with ease. A singer who wanted to be a writer before she started to concentrate on songs, it was the storytelling aspect that first drew her to traditional material. Receiving Radio 2 airplay, Jenny has played support to the likes of Devon Sproule, John Smith, and Spiers and Boden.

Jenny’s latest album Sweet Demon pays homage to the romantic in all its madness, sadness and insane happiness. From the twangy guitar and double bass of lonesome opener, The Cinder Rosary, to the swelling Hammond of the uplifting The Bough Won’t Break, Jenny McCormick’s new collection of songs show her love of folklore and poetry more visibly than ever before.

“Her talent for songwriting is pretty formidable.”Chris Long, BBC
