About The Wailin' Jennys
They are Nicky Mehta, Ruth Moody and Heather Masse. Three beautiful women. Three distinct voices. Together they are The Wailin' Jennys – a Canadian folk trio that was formed by complete accident.
It's true. The 'one-time-only' performance these ladies gave a guitar shop in Winnipeg, Manitoba has grown into something special, as The Wailin' Jennys have become a popular international folk act heralded for their live performances.
It's been 10 years since The Jennys released their first full-length album "40 Days," to critical acclaim. Two years later came the appropriately-named "Firecracker," a powerhouse follow-up to their freshman effort. It crossed out of folk and into the alt-country, pop and rock genres and was nominated for a Juno Award. The project also captured the 2007 Folk Alliance Award for Contemporary Release of the Year and spent an astounding 56 weeks on the Billboard charts.
It seemed as if everything The Jennys touched would turn to gold. Their 2009 release, "Live at Mauch Chunk Opera House," also spend a year on the Billboard bluegrass charts. Furthermore, it cemented the trio's status as show-stopping ensemble, with fans drawn in again and again by their harmonies, songs and stage banter.
The Wailin' Jennys latest album, 2011's "Bright Morning Stars," saw them record with award-winning producer Mark Howard. The album again showcased the group's innovative sound, and is just one of many reasons this happy accident is a decade old and still growing in popularity. Catch them on tour now throughout North America, with dates currently booked through November.
