Since then, the band has been on a whirlwind adventure all over South Africa and has toured Holland as support act for Johnny Clegg’s World Tour in 2017.

This album stays true to their original sound that has been captivating audiences all over the country.
Jenny and the Jameses has performed at the Cape town Folk and Acoustic Festival, the Knysna Celtic Festival in 2015 and 2016, the White Mountain Festival in 2016 and 2017, the Taste of Darling Festival, the Darling Beer Festival, The Cape Town Fringe Festival and in Amsterdam, as well as venues big and small, quirky, straight-laced, humble and grand all around the country. They never fail to charm.
Jenny and the Jameses is one of the most fun and refreshingly honest bands on the circuit and a must to be seen live.
