Top Celtic psych band MARY JANE at Havant Arts Centre on St Patricks Day (17t hMarch)



Celebrate St Patrick's Day (17th March) in style with  MARY JANE!

That night they're at  The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre (a.k.a. Havant Arts Centre) 56, East St., Havant, Hants,PO91BS

MARY JANE play a highly original blend of acoustic & electric psychedelic folk-rock.

MARY JANE are  Jo Quinn (vocals, flute, fiddle), Gillie Hotston (fiddle, vocals), Paul Alan Taylor (guitar, bouzouki), Jon Hawkes (bass), Steve Barker (drums) and Serena Smith (fiddle). 

Their music is an individualistic & varied combination of self-penned & traditional material, with strong Celtic, Eastern & Medieval influences.

Mary Jane’s energetic stage shows have become an increasingly popular live attraction at festivals and venues throughout the UK during recent years.  Their music is a very individualistic & varied combination of self-penned & traditional material, with strong Celtic, Eastern & Medieval influences.

The band are now  regulars at the fringe festival of Fairport Convention's Cropredy Festival in Oxfordshire, where they've been drawing capacity audiences.  It was at Cropredy that  they were spotted by the head honcho of the highly respected Talking Elephant Records.

As a redult, Talking Elephant Records snapped them up, and  have now released  their new studio album, "Eve". 

Prior to that, MARY JANE were signed to the German label September Gurls, who released a number of their earlier albums, including  "Hazy Days", "The Gates of Silent Memory", "Tacit" and  "To The Prettiest One".
