Helen Turner and Sharon Jagger produce spellbinding effects with their rich harmonies. Playing their own material, they’ve established an appealing stage presence and gathered 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 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.
“It’s always nice to find a stunningly good act, making lovely harmony-drenched acoustic music reminiscent of the Indigo Girls.” Bob Fischer of BBC Radio
“Accomplished writers and performers… there is something instinctive, symbiotic almost, in the way they blend as musicians.” Rock n Reel magazine
Union Jill have worked closely with Clive Gregson (Any Trouble, Richard Thompson, Nanci Griffith) and John Wood (Nick Drake, Squeeze, John Martyn) to produce their new album. Sharon and Helen have also collaborated with a number of other excellent musicians, including Andy Seward (Kate Rusby, Martin Simpson), Mark Boyce (The Durbevilles), Kate St. John (Van Morrison, Kathryn Williams, Marianne Faithfull) and Ric Sanders (Fairport Convention).
Represented by Jacey Bedford Agency, Union Jill have been playing live across the country since 2005
