New dates and news!
We’ve been chomping at the bit to announce some very exciting news to you all and the day has finally come. We’re heading back out on the road in June! We’ve posted our summer tour dates on our site and on our Facebook page so please check those out and we hope you can make it to a show (more dates will follow). We’re very excited to be getting back on stage together after this last hiatus and we wanted to fill you in on the reasons for our break.
The first exciting piece of news is the arrival of Heather and husband Ian’s beautiful baby boy, August Loyal Duncan born last summer on August 18, 2012! As if a new baby weren’t enough to keep her busy, Heather has been performing on A Prairie Home Companion, as well as in her own duo with Jed Wilson and alongside Dave Douglas and Roswell Rudd as a guest singer. She also just celebrated the release of her album with Dick Hyman entitled “Lock My Heart” and will be performing a few upcoming shows with him.
Ruth has been road warrior extraordinaire, touring all over North American and the UK with her band since the Jennys left the road. She just released her second solo album called “These Wilder Things”. The album features special guests Heather and Nicky and she is currently on tour in Europe with her own band as well as opening for the legendary Mark Knopfler.
Nicky has settled back in Winnipeg with her partner Grant and twin boys Beck and Finn and has been organizing, performing, and mentoring in the vibrant arts community, balancing that with writing and parenthood. And amusingly, now that her boys are finally sleeping through the night, she has started work on her second solo album, a collection of lullabies for all ages due for release in 2014. A brand new website will be revealed in the coming months.
We are so very thankful for everyone’s patience and continued support as we’ve taken the time to tend to other parts of our lives. It’s what allows us to come back together as Jennys, to celebrate 11 years together with new shows, and to give back all the love you’ve shown us. Thanks and we’ll see you soon!
