Firecracker – The Wailin’ Jennys 

Forget The Dixie Chicks! The folk and country trio, The Wailin’ Jennys, are back again transforming the instruments and the harmonies of folk and country into something wonderfully different. Forget The Dixie Chicks! The folk and country trio, The Wailin’ Jennys, are back again transforming the instruments and the harmonies of folk and country into something wonderfully different. Famous for their appearances on Prairie Home Companion, The Jennys (Annabelle Chvostek, Nicky Mehta, and Ruth Moody) have released their second CD entitled Firecracker. The thirteen tracks (twelve of them written by the band’s members) feature the group’s signature harmonies and their fondness for that old-time sound. It is a beautiful CD to listen to, rich with captivating melodies, terrific acoustic instrumentation, and soulful songwriting!
