Jane Sapp is a powerful, highly-regarded performer, song-writer, recording artist, and educator. Her music reflects the blues and gospel sounds of her Georgia youth and is deeply rooted in the spiritual, religious & historical experiences of the African-American world. Her live performances have been featured in concert halls (including Carnegie Hall with Pete Seeger) throughout the U.S. and in Canada, Mali, Senegal, Sweden and West Africa.
Jane’s song Movin On’ (sung by Tremaine Hawkins) was used as the theme song for “The Promised Land”, a BBC mini-series shown on the Discovery Channel.
A delightful lady and recording!
