I was also delighted to read the following comments from a journalist in the States - his name is Ken Scott:
"Sometimes likened to
Fairport Conventions Sandy Denny, this exceptional
female folk singer has an accomplished style that's immediately accessible,
not to mention miles above most Christian offerings.
It seems only natural that a talent like that of Jancis Harvey should not be
confirmed soley to the Christian market.From simple relaxed folk to soft
hypnotic gems with ethereal guitar work and vocals...."
These are my re-released vinyls on CD - for further details click on them below:
Thanks for the people who book me for concerts and re-book me, and for those who have bought my CDs and written to the radio/tv stations. Most of all thanks, to Christian Copyright Licensing for all they do for me and my work.
The songs of Jancis Harvey can be heard these days in schools, churches, concert halls, village halls, masonic halls and just about everywhere there is an audience who appreciates the gentle style of folk-music of this very popular singer/songwriter.
Jancis Harvey is a folk-singer and she has been writing and singing her songs since the very early days of BBC Radio 2 and has made many appearances on the old BBC Light Programmes FIVE TO TEN slot. Jancis is a regular member of the BBC Schools Broadcasting team and her songs, FROM THE DARKNESS CAME LIGHT and LORD OF THE HARVEST have become part of the establishment and appear in several publications, including COME AND PRAISE I and II the BBC Schools hymnbooks and BBC BEGINNINGS. She has presented two of her own series of FIVE TO ELEVEN for BBC 1 TV with producer Ralph Rolls and over the years she had her own late night programmes on Anglia TV with Ivan Bailey, YTV with Mary Watts and Tyne Tees Television with Max Deas. see tv page
Over the years she has been commissioned to write songs for various ventures and these include, ROAD TO EMMAUS, which was written for the opening of the first EMMAUS Community in the UK in 1992. Also, THE OPEN DOOR, composed for the Newmarket Open Door project and used extensively at the various concert where Jancis sings in aid of this charity. A SHOEBOX FULL OF WISHES, was composed for the women of Croatia in 1997 as the result of a shoebox appeal in Cambridgeshire and in fact many of her songs reflect her life and the countryside around her, in her native East Anglia. Also, see career page.
As a Christian songwriter, she has given concerts in some of the largest cathedrals in the country and some of the smallest village churches - from Winchester to Whittlesford, and from Ripon to Risby - sometimes working with the local schoolchildren as a special project, and also on her own.
Her style is simple, accompanying herself on guitar and she can supply a p.a. system should this be required. Visit the concert page for details of forthcoming public events.
