Jemima is a folk/country musician from Somerset who writes original songs incorporating many themes including family, loved ones and cherished places. Her uncomplicated yet delicate guitar work provides the perfect accompaniment for her strong and mesmerising vocal. Performing live as a solo act, Jemima is a true and captivating performer and fundamentally what comes through in her music is her unforced and genuine passion for music and story telling.
Jemima is the eldest of 4 daughters in a family of 6; they are an extremely musical family and have been singing and playing together for years. They are known as 'The Farey Family' and are slowly becoming more recognized within the area, playing original compositions and traditional folk, gospel and country songs.()
Jemima was brought up listening to 'The Carter Cash Family', 'Liam O'Flynn' and 'Hank Williams' so has been influenced by folk musicians from a very young age and has continued to develop this interest. However despite being aware of many folk and country artists, when asked, her inspirations are her parents Maria and Jonathan.
