The Wailin' Jennys have taken advantage of a break in touring to honor many fans' requests to produce a "Live" CD, which will be released in August 2009, and begin compiling all new material for a studio CD to be released in Spring 2010. They will resume their U.S. Touring with concerts in February and April 2010, and festivals in Summer 2010.
The Wailin' Jennys have toured three continents, and are enjoying burgeoning international acclaim and a rapidly growing fan base. They continue to garner rave reviews for their album, Firecracker, which has spent over 30 weeks in the Top 5 on the Billboard Bluegrass chart, and has charted in the Top 20 on Billboard's Top Heatseakers, Top Independent Albums and Top Internet Albums. Firecracker also rose to #2 on the Amazon Top Sellers Chart.
Over the past two years, The Wailin' Jennys have made many appearances on Garrison Keiller's 'A Prairie Home Companion', sharing the stage with luminaries such as Bonnie Raitt and Meryl Streep. This February, the band had the honour of performing alongside Roseanne Cash and Phil Cunningham as well as other notable artists at the venerable Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow, Scotland.
"perhaps more beautiful than ever. The Wailin' Jennys are the darlings of the North American roots music arena." Greg Quill, The Toronto Star, July 2006.
"Like three little birds singing softly and sweetly in the early morn, the harmony of the Wailin' Jennys pleasantly rises from the speakers and greets the listener with a refreshing start to the day." David McPherson, Exclaim!
"Fueled by the elemental power and transcendent glory of their honeyed three part harmonies, Firecracker is guaranteed to soothe your soul with its earthy passion and heartfelt compassion."
