Alice Jones is a singer, multi-instrumentalist and dancer from Ripponden in West Yorkshire.
Her background is deeply rooted in the English folk tradition and the music that she makes instantly reflects this strong influence.
Alice sings mostly traditional songs accompanying herself on the piano or harmonium and sometimes only with foot percussion.
The sensitive and intuitive arrangements of each song allow the stories to take centre stage and, inspired by her beginnings as a percussive dancer, they are loaded with a rhythm and energy that portrays her dancer’s heartbeat. Her distinctive voice and innovative style lends a fresh, modern perspective to traditional material and brings new life to old songs.
