About Us

Wayward Jane’s music is an innovative ‘transatlantic’ interpretation of American folk and Old Time traditions, blending roots material with fresh arrangements and original compositions. Their rich sound features fiddle, clawhammer banjo, double bass, guitar, wooden flute and close vocal harmonies. Their live shows have a joyful energy, expressing the fine musicianship of the band members as well as the friendship and playful chemistry that exists between them. Ranging in mood from high-octane, toe-tapping tunes to tender and soulful songs, Wayward Jane tend to leave audiences with a glow in their hearts. 

With one record under their belt, their eagerly awaited second album ‘Old Train’ is to be released at the end of 2019. Wayward Jane have appeared together at folk clubs and festivals across the land, touring extensively in the UK and Ireland. They were recently featured live in session on BBC Radio Scotland’s Travelling Folk where one commentator remarked that “they’re just that bit different from anything else happening in Scotland!” When they’re not out on the road, the band are busy members of the Edinburgh traditional music scene and are to be found on most nights of the week hosting sessions around town.
