Union Jill

Union Jill are a Yorkshire-based female acoustic duo with over a decade of festival and folk club experience.

As singers, instrumentalists and songwriters, they bring a sense of storytelling with their songs, with vocals that produce spellbinding effects with their rich harmonies.  Union Jill have established an appealing stage presence and gather 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.
