Jane Germain

Track #10 - "Little Red Bird"

Jane Germain (May)

Tasmania, Australia


Jane Germain’s musical journey has taken her from Western Australia to Tasmania and all the way back to her Chinese heritage. She’s played many styles ranging from raging bluegrass to hard driving blues to old timey banjo duets and alt country blues. Germain expresses her emotions and musicality in a career that’s won four consecutive Western Australian Country Music Awards, a residency in Beijing awarded by the Australia–China Council, and an invitation for her to represent Australia at the 2010 World Expo in China. Her latest album, Home on the Hill, contains songs written about her travels in Tasmania, and also include twin banjo duets – Germain on clawhammer banjo and Ian Simpson playing bluegrass style – with Big-Eyed Rabbit, Cluck Old Hen and Lulu Girl.
