“heart-stopping harmonies…The Jennys’ sound remains as pure as a mountain stream” – The Washington Times
The Wailin’ Jennys return to the Hall! The Jennys are Nicky Mehta, Ruth Moody 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, The Wailin’ Jennys have grown over the years into one of today’s most beloved international folk acts. Founding members Ruth Moody and Nicky Mehta along with New York-based Heather Masse continue to create some of the most exciting and exquisite music on the folk-roots scene, stepping up their musical game with each critically-lauded recording and thrilling audiences with their renowned live performances. Together they forge a unified folk-pop sound—all delivered with the irresistible vocal power of three. http://www.thewailinjennys.com/

The Kingston Trio is one of the few groups today that has survived the many changes in the world of music. They have remained consistent in their sound, which probably explains their resurgence in popularity over the last few years. Today, the Kingston Trio consists of George Grove, Bill Zorn and Rick Dougherty.
Formed in 1957, The Kingston Trio emerged from San Francisco’s North Beach club scene to take the country by storm, bringing the rich tradition of American folk music into the mainstream for the first time. During the late 50s & early 60s, the Trio enjoyed unprecedented record sales and worldwide fame, while influencing the musical tastes of a generation. Through changing times, the Trio has played on, remaining popular for a simple reason… great songs that sound as good today as the first time you heard them. Over forty years after the song, “Tom Dooley” shot to the top of the charts, the Trio is still on the road thirty weeks out of year. http://www.kingstontrio.com/html/home.htm
