Festival on the Green 2018: James Hill & Anne Janelle

A ukulele and cello duo might seem like an odd combination, but only until you hear the music these two create. James Hill is widely regarded as one of the best ukulele players in the world and Anne Janelle is “a cellist of true beauty” (Ottawa Citizen) who has performed with Kanye West and Bruce Cockburn.
Together, James and Anne craft a sound that is intricate, enchanting and engaging: “a crystal clear sound filled with warmth” (Bob Mersereau, CBC).
Their album True Love Don’t Weep won the 2008 Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Traditional Album of the Year.
They are accomplished instrumentalists and some of the finest songwriters of their generation. Their music has been
described as “inventive, entertaining, beautifully written and brilliantly performed” (R2 Magazine).
In short, a night out with James Hill & Anne Janelle is “the perfect evening of tunes, stories and musical virtuosity”
(Wellington Dominion-Post).

“If you thought James Hill was simply the ukulele wunderkind, his latest album will convince you that he is also a great songwriter.” – Penguin Eggs
A fine songwriter and ukester par excellence.” – Raffi
