Jay Bradberry

Strings

Delving straight into fiddle tunes at the age of 8, Jay’s style strongly reflects the bluegrass and country musical backgrounds she comes from. From attending weekly sessions to finding like-minded friends to perform with, there was no doubt that music was a long-term plan for Jay and (after reaching the final of the BBC Young Folk Award in 2008) she has been successfully touring the UK’s British folk scene with her band, ‘Jaywalkers’.  Since leaving school and making music a profession, Jay has been teaching in a variety of formats; from one to one tuition and residential courses to children’s band and instrument workshops in schools and at festivals. Having 13 years of musical experience, whilst only 21 years old, Jay has bundles of enthusiasm and knowledge to share with the children in ways that are best suited to their methods of learning.
