Jeni Hankins has been through a great deal since her two previous appearances at Caltech with Billy Kemp as Jeni and Billy. Jeni's father passed away in 2016 and she and Billy have parted ways. And Jeni has moved to London! But the same endearing directness of this Appalachian woman from Jewell Ridge, Virginia still shines through.
Jeni has just released her first solo recording, The Oxygen Girl and you can read the glowing review from FolkWorks. Her stories come from a broader geography, ranging from England to Las Vegas and places in between. They also relfect the emotions and insights following the passing of her father. Jeni plays guitar and banjo, and has been known to bring an autoharp or another instrument or two along. She just might do a little flat foot dancing, too. We will likely hear some of the old songs and the new ones, and we understand that she will be accompanied by some other musicians at this show. You will want to be here!
