Helen Turner and Sharon Jagger have been performing together since 2006. After discovering a shared love of folk and acoustic music they soon realised their voices were meant to be together. Both bring distinctive songwriting styles to Union Jill and achieve some spellbinding effects with their voices and instruments (mandola, guitar and anglo concertina). Union Jill have gained a reputation for quality performances and well-crafted songs. Their onstage presence is natural, funny and personable and, whilst their material touches on the darker side of life at times, they enjoy a natural rapport with each other and with the audience leading to banter delivered with a light touch. They are now deservedly establishing themselves as a long-standing and growing presence in the acoustic/folk world.

 

“It’s always nice when you find a stunningly good act…making lovely harmony-drenched acoustic music reminiscent of the Indigo Girls.” Bob Fischer, BBC Radio

 

“Sharon and Helen [have] established themselves as a duo to watch out for.  Accomplished writers and performers… there is something instinctive, symbiotic almost, in the way they blend as musicians.”  Oz Hardwick, Rock n Reel

Accomplished guitarists and articulate songwriters although the first attribute to win over audiences is the intuitive harmony of their distinct yet complementary voices.” Rock ‘n Reel (Radio 2)
