Jane Bom-Bane plays after food/drinks at the cafe on Fridays and Saturdays if you ask her to.  Sometimes she will play an official full length show with hats ‘n’all, and often with a musical friend.

Jane also sings with madrigal trio, The Silver Swans: the other two are the fabulous Eliza Skelton and Emma Kilbeysilverswans1

Jane Bom-Bane performs original songs and poetry to the accompaniment of harmoniums and mechanical hats. She has played at arts centres and festivals up, down and outside the country, worked with Linda Thompson, David Thomas (Pere Ubu), Jerry Dammers (Specials), Rich Hall, Stewart Lee, Mike Heron and David Cunningham (Flying Lizards), appeared solo on Channel 4, BBC 2, STV, Russian State TV, Sky TV, Sky International, Radio 1,2,3,4 & 5Live, Radio Scotland and written music for Steve Hawley’s film ‘The Man from Porloch’ previewed at the NFT. She has produced three solo albums and a palindromic collaboration with Nick Pynn – ‘Rotator’. In 2017, she will release an album of songs from the many she hasn’t recorded yet…
