Sarah Jane Scouten with the Honky Tonk Wingmen
Sarah Jane Scouten was nominated for two Canadian Folk Music Awards for her second album The Cape in 2014. The songwriter shows a signature flair for the roots of roots music, ranging from Western-swing, honky-tonk, and Cajun to Appalachian string band music with a hint of the Maritimes in her "memorable performance" (Montreal Gazette).
The Cape was recorded/produced by Juno-nominated producer Andrew Collins (Foggy Hogtown Boys, Creaking Tree String Quartet) and was mastered by David Travers-Smith. While the string band sound is at the core of the record, The Cape also features pedal steel, accordion, and drums, with her sister and fellow Montreal songwriter, Anna Scouten lending her arresting blood-harmonies.
She is touring with her country band, The Honky Tonk Wingmen (from Toronto: Ben Plotnick, James McEleney and Sly Juhas). They'll be playing original material from The Cape, songs from her upcoming EP release on vinyl, plus selected archival songs from southern BC and Alberta. The band's take on classic country moves this songwriter's distinctive sound in an exciting new direction.
