Jane Harwood – Bass
As well as playing bass in Malarchy, Jane also plays guitar, flute, whistle, and harp. She has a wealth of musical experiences to draw on for inspiration. Formative influences include an unlikely combination of claustrophobic folk clubs, a taste for noisy jazz-funk, anything offbeat or on the off beat. You may recognise her from way back, having been a founder member of the iconic, unclassifiable Oroonies, and later, the Cheapsuit Oroonies. Jane plays flute with Gringo Ska, the South West’s favourite dancing ska band. She co-runs a community music organisation, Count Me In, which expands opportunities for people to experience live music making.
