The Celtic Music Radio Album of the Week commencing 6 July is a new ‘EP’ from The Chaplins featuring Jill Jackson and Lisa Tring. The new EP is from the beautifully crafted pen of singer-songwriter Jill.
The Chaplins EP can be download from iTunes and there will be limited copies at forthcoming gigs.
The Chaplins completed a very successful tour with Runrig at the end of last year in the UK and Germany collecting vast numbers new fans along the way as well as the thousands of Jill Jackson fans already out there loving the music which is pleasantly deceiving.
The Chaplins are Jill Jackson (lead vocals, guitar, banjo, ukulele, harmonica), Lisa Tring (drums, percussion, vocals, ukulele) and Cameron Maxwell (double bass, vocals).
With their timeless feel, The Chaplins will appeal to all whether eight or 80, you will find yourself mesmerised by this distinctive trio.
They formed in July 2012, getting their name from lead singer Jill’s borderline obsession with Charlie Chaplin. With their 1920’s dress sense and quirky, alternative bluegrass sound, The Chaplins are a unique addition to the music world.
Liz Clark talks to Jill and Lisa about their music and CD. Buy the The Chaplins debut CD on The Chaplins website.
Album of the Week, Monday 8 July 2013 at 6.00pm and at Catch Up anytime.
