Firecracker – The Wailin’ Jennys
Firecracker is the first official recording with the Winnipeg-based Jennys’ new lineup Firecracker is the first official recording with the Winnipeg-based Jennys’ new lineup. Cara Luft has left the band to pursue her own interests and Montreal’s Annabelle Chvostek has joined the trio as the alto and multi-instrumentalist. I wasn’t certain what to expect with this new record, as I had fallen in love with the previous album, 40 Days. Rest assured that the new Jennys lineup is in excellent shape. Not only have they played the Winnipeg Folk Festival’s main stage,Firecracker is full of beautiful harmonies and sweet, sweet vocals. Favourite tracks of Firecracker include "Starlight," "Prairie Town" and "Long Time Traveller." I highly suggest checking out the Jennys live if you are given the chance; Firecracker is well worth the listen.
