The Wailin’ Jennys come to NUHS

The Wailin’ Jennys continue to evolve into far more than the melodious sum of their individual talents seven years after blowing in on a fresh acoustic breeze from Canada’s Midwestern heartland. Spurred onward by a growing fan base that swoons at their intuitive harmonies and revels in their engaging stage presence and uplifting repertoire, the Jennys continue to win hearts.

The trio have wooed audiences throughout North America while also making successful forays to the U.K. and continental Europe. And foremost among an unfolding series of life moments have been numerous Juno Award nominations in Canada, the continuation of a much-cherished relationship with A Prairie Home Companion (Garrison Keillor’s popular National Public Radio show) and a memorable date alongside Rosanne Cash at the prestigious Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow.

Soprano Ruth Moody (guitar, banjo, accordion, bodhran) and mezzo Nicky Mehta (guitar, harmonica, ukulele, percussion) are charter members who’ve anchored the Jennys since the first line-up formed in their Winnipeg hometown. The critical third voice, an alto who fills out the chordal range of the group’s vibrant three-part harmonies, has been filled in turn by Cara Luft, Annabelle Chvostek and, now that the latter has returned to her own solo career, new recruit Heather Masse.
