Episode Guide »
The Wailin' Jennys bring their brand of folk and contemporary roots music to Infinity Hall. Brought together in 2002 for what was supposed to be a one-time coffee house gig in Winnipeg, this award-winning trio soon found their irresistible chemistry and tight vocal harmonies were winning over audiences throughout North America and beyond. Comprised of Nicky Mehta, Ruth Moody, and Heather Masse, The Wailin' Jennys have toured extensively since the release of their eponymously named first studio album in 2003. They've collaborating with a variety of artists and become a fixture as musical guests on public radio's A Prairie Home Companion. Steeped in classical music and art, The Wailin' Jennys have developed a style and sound all their own. With heavy use of acoustic instruments, the group's musical influences range from 70s rock to traditional Celtic folk tunes. Their complexities in style and musical offering only serve to distinguish them further from the rest of the music industry.Having won a Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) in 2005 for their album, 40 Days, The Wailin' Jennys have continued to enjoy success, including their newest album, Bright Morning Stars, released to critical acclaim in the United States and Canada.
