Presented by the Chan Centre and Capilano University

The reflective, uplifting, groovy harmonies of the Wailin’ Jennys and Jeremy Fisher grace the Chan stage once again. With the Wailin’ Jennys hailing from Winnipeg and Jeremy Fisher based in Vancouver, originally from Hamilton, Ontario, we are proud to present this rocking Canadian double bill.

The JUNO Award-winning Wailin’ Jennys are a trio of hip young talent. Soprano Ruth Moody, mezzo Nicky Mehta, and alto Heather Masse weave delicate female voices with clear, strong melodies and deep, rich-textured lyrics with a folksy bluegrass twang.

Like the Wailin’ Jennys, Jeremy Fisher’s music is deeply insightful. This upbeat, 1960s influenced rocker also really belts out the tunes. From busking on street corners to touring across Canada, by bicycle, and painstakingly producing his $60 homemade video for the two million-hit YouTube sensation “Cigarette,” there is no stopping this talented young musician.

Says Fisher, “The greatest thing music can do is to make listening to a record the best three and-a-half minutes of your day, or the best night of your week when you go to a show.” Expect just that.
