Jeni & Billy welcome you to join them on their One Big Picnic tour, celebrating their first studio release in four years, Picnic in the Sky (being released first in the UK on June 6 and then in the USA on August 1). Here's a review of Picnic on the Sky from Hazel Davis – writer for Maverick, Billboard, the Guardian, and The Independent: "I first saw Jeni and Billy at Beverley Folk Festival in the UK. Their freshness, authenticity and likeability struck me hard and I found it difficult to shake the experience. I have followed their career ever since and devoured each album, whilst each time worrying that their genuine, charming sound will be diluted if they ever "hit the big time". But I guess they have hit the big time, if the "big time" is gaining a devoted following in the States and in the UK, all of whom can't get enough of Hankins' enchanting tales of life on Jewell Ridge. And I am pleased to say that this album, although produced by the Grammy-award-winning Dave Way (who mixed the Spice Girls), has lost none of the hometown charm of the previous discs. Like their other records, it's organic and raw. Hankins' voice still falters beguilingly and her and "her true love" Billy's synergy is still very much audible. This new disc is a special treat for Jeni & Billy fans but will be a classy introduction for the uninitiated. I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want. To listen to this again and again."
Beautiful, pure music from the Appalachian Mountains via Nashville. If you only visit the folk club once this year make sure it’s for this!
