Union Jill - 3rd March 2020 Union Jill, the York-based duo of Sharon Jagger and Helen Turner, are singers, instrumentalists and songwriters showcasing a variety of strong songs in an upbeat style. Snappy and upbeat, their vocals are as tight as a drum and they have a blend of voices good enough to be siblings. They weave spellbinding effects with their rich harmonies. Playing their own material, they’ve established an appealing stage presence and gathered an ever-growing fan base across the UK. Taking their inspiration from a wide range of styles, Union Jill bring their own energy and passion to the acoustic music scene.
They mix traditional folk instrumentation (guitars, mandola, concertina) with an edgy contemporary feel and powerful vocal delivery.
Sharon and Helen’s ability to tell a story through lyrics draws in audiences of all types. Their material embraces historical themes and contemporary issues; personal experiences and protest songs. They have an on-stage banter that you only get from two women sharing a stage. https://www.jacey-bedford.com/unionjill.htm
