Artist Spotlight at the Rodeo The Wailin' Jennys
Nicky Mehta, Ruth Moody, and Heather Masse are the three ladies of The Wailin’ Jennys. Their folk-pop trio vocal harmonies, refined throughout the years, are exceptionally unique.
Starting in Winnipeg, Manitoba with two solo vocalists and singer/songwriters, Moody and Mehta came together for a one-time-only performance at a guitar store. Since then, New Yorker Masse adds to this girl group, making it a trio.
The Wailin’ Jennys wins a JUNO award in 2005 for Roots and Traditional Album of the Year for their album 40 Days. Their second album Firecracker is JUNO nominated and a Folk Alliance Award winner for Contemporary Release of the Year in 2007.
See the Wailin’ Jennys in Rocky Mount, Virginia on December 16th at the Harvest Performance Center and in Charlottesville, Virginia on December 17th at the Jefferson Theater. Purchase tickets while you still can, these lovely ladies are selling out on their tour!
