Jenny Whiteley:

Two time Juno award winner Jenny Whiteley is due back in Canada after a year of living in France, and sporting a brand new recording. “The Original Jenny Whiteley” takes a traditional route in a nod to Jenny’s musical pedigree and her father’s and uncle’s well-known band from the 70s, “The Original Sloth Band”.

The songs on “The Original Jenny Whiteley” range from bluegrass (Whiteley is a founding member of Toronto’s High Lonesome Wednesdays with her band Heartbreak Hill), jug band music (through the 80s and 90s, Jenny and brother Dan were part of Junior Jug Band, a family band with dad, Chris, and uncle Ken), to old time and early jazz (the soundtrack to Whiteley’s childhood). There are a fistful of new original songs here, too! Along with vocals and guitar, the songs included here feature jug, banjo, harmonica, fiddle, bones, jaw harp and some pretty unbelievable whistling!
