About Sarah Jane Scouten
With flavours of Nanci Griffith, Iris DeMent and Lucinda Williams and a wealth of old-time and bluegrass music, her songs are faithful to a long-standing folk music tradition, but often spill over into modern themes that are outspoken and edgy, from homelessness to midwifery to tongue-in-cheek heartache songs and unabashed Canadiana.

Sarah Jane Scouten’s rootsy and old-timey slice of life second album ‘The Cape’ was named after her childhood playground Cape Roger Curtis, on the coast of B,C. and a stormy seven-and-a-half minute long ballad by the same name. The album, released in 2014, was critically acclaimed and nominated for two Canadian Folk Music Awards.
