The Wailin’ Jennys

The Wailin’ Jennys are Ruth Moody, Nicky Mehta and Heather Masse – three distinct voices that together make an achingly perfect vocal sound. Starting as a happy accident of solo singer-songwriters getting together for a one-time-only performance at a tiny guitar shop in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, The Wailin’ Jennys have grown over the years into one of today’s most beloved international folk acts. Although known primarily as an acoustic outfit, The Wailin’ Jennys have a wide range of musical backgrounds that have formed their musical sensibilities. Soprano Ruth Moody (vocals, guitar, accordion, banjo, bodhrán) is a classically trained vocalist and pianist known as an accomplished, versatile singer of traditional and Celtic music. Mezzo Nicky Mehta (vocals, guitar, harmonica, drums, ukulele) was nominated for a Canadian Indie Music Award. Alto Heather Masse (vocals, upright bass) is a Jazz Voice graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music, and is a regular guest on A Prairie Home Companion. With their varying backgrounds, each of the Jennys is unique in their individual expression. Together they forge a unified folk-pop sound all delivered with the irresistible vocal power of three.
