Welcome Summer with The Walin’ Jennys at the Clayton Center on June 13 at 7:30!
The Wailin’ Jennys are Nicky Mehta, Ruth Moody and Heather Masse three distinct voices that together make an achingly perfect vocal sound. Starting as a happy accident of solo singer/songwriters getting together for a one-time-only performance at a tiny guitar shop in Winnipeg, Manitoba, The Wailin’ Jennys have grown over the years into one of today’s most beloved international folk acts. Founding members Moody and Mehta along with New York-based Masse continue to create some of the most exciting music on the folk-roots scene, stepping up their musical game with each critically lauded recording and thrilling audiences with their renowned live performances. Steeped in the artistry and elegance that has defined their career, the album presents the Jennys at their very best, highlighting their heartfelt vocals, otherworldly harmonies, and sophisticated arrangements. Fifteen was nominated for a Juno award in 2018 for
Traditional Roots album of the year.The Jennys will continue to tour their latest release through 2020, while also road testing new songs for an upcoming studio album.
” They named the record Fifteen in celebration of their 15 years together. Time hasn’t ravaged their voices at all. They still sound as angelic as ever.” —Peter Lindblad, Elmore Magazine
“… their approach on this latest LP — a set of covers — doesn’t sacrifice any of the considerate care that has always infused their siren-song harmonies. If anything, they’ve used the studio to capture the magic they radiate during their live shows.” – Amanda Wicks, The Bluegrass Situation
