Event type: All Ages
Sarah Jane Scouten brings her unique blend of roots music back to Guelph for a Folk Roots Radio Presents… show at Silence on Saturday May 23 at 8 p.m. The opening act for the evening will be Guelph’s own Chesterfield Trio. It promises to be a great night so get your tickets early! About Sarah Jane Scouten With flavours of Nanci Griffith, Iris DeMent and Lucinda Williams and a wealth of old-time and bluegrass music, her songs are faithful to a long-standing folk music tradition, but often spill over into modern themes that are outspoken and edgy, from homelessness to midwifery to tongue-in-cheek heartache songs and unabashed Canadiana. Sarah Jane Scouten’s nostalgic slice of life second album ‘The Cape’ was named after her childhood playground Cape Roger Curtis, on the coast of B,C. and a stormy seven-and-a-half minute long ballad by the same name. The album, released in 2014, was nominated for two Canadian Folk Music Awards.
Cutoff is Saturday, May 23, 2015 3:59 pm EST unless it sells out earlier.
