The Wailin’ Jennys at Harbourfront

The Wailin’ Jennys play the Enwave Theatre at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto on Saturday June 21 2014. Tickets are $35 and are available online here.

When the Wailin’ Jennys started out they were just three solo singer-songwriters getting together for a one-time-only performance at a tiny guitar shop in Winnipeg. Since those humble beginnings they’ve grown into one of today’s most beloved international folk acts. Founding members Ruth Moody (vocals, guitar, accordion, banjo, bodhrán) and Nicky Mehta (vocals, guitar, harmonica, drums, ukulele) along with New York-based Heather Masse (vocals, upright bass) continue to create some of the most exciting and exquisite music on the folk-roots scene.
