The Wailin’ Jennys – Bright Morning Stars

Billboard-charting and JUNO Award winning The Wailn’ Jennys are back with their hotly anticipated new studio album Bright Morning Stars. Their previous studio album, Firecracker, released in 2006, spent an astonishing 54 weeks on the Billboard Bluegrass Top 10 Albums chart.  Their most recent release, Live At The Mauch Chunk Opera House peaked at #2 on the same chart, and #25 on the Heatseekers Albums chart.  For Bright Morning Stars, The Wailin’ Jennys enlist the talents of award-winning producer Mark Howard (Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams, U2).  With a major tour of North America starting February 2011 (including an appearance on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion) Bright Morning Stars has already become one of the most anticipated folk releases of 2011.
