November 2015 – Wolf’s Den Concert

Jenny Allen

Jenny Allen

Friday, November 06, 2015

Dynamic folk rock, with a twist of rootsy blues. Outstanding vocals, instrumentation and strong penmanship have made this versatile performer a must see at major folk festivals and clubs throughout Canada and the US.

There must be something in the water, the air, or deep within the earth that gets into Canadian musicians early in life. You hear it in Bruce Cockburn, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, and a host of other artists born and bred up north. Jenny Allen seems to have drunk from the same well, taken a deep breath, and to have absorbed whatever such musicians gain in Canada. “Blanket” sounds alive from the onset, then builds into a class or category of its own. It would be easy to label Jenny as a “country” singer/songwriter, but that would be a mistake. She has nuances from all shades of musical styling.
