Review: PLAIN JANE: THE SHOCKUMENTARY

DSC_0149

Jane Hash is an artist, healer, blogger and activist. She is also barely three feet tall. Born with a genetic condition that left her with multiple fractures, her health was compromised for most of her youth, and her mobility limited by the fragility of her bones.

It’s safe to say Blackmore’s Night shows no sign of slowing down or losing their edge. [Read more...]
