Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Jenny Ritter will be at Silence with support from South-Western Ontario based “The Oh Chays”. Jenny spent a decade playing with roots outfit “The Gruff”, before striking out under her own name. Jenny’s just released “Raised by Wolves” the follow-up to her critically acclaimed album “Bright Mainland” (2012). “Raised By Wolves” is full of songs that tell stories from her “unconventional” upbringing deep in the woods on Vancouver Island, featuring dreamy landscapes, pastoral imagery and some very unusual people. A seriously accomplished musician as we’ll as a songwriter, Jenny supports her clear, sweet vocals with banjo and guitar, and for this tour, her backing band features members of Fish & Bird. Her unique indie-folk sound is sure to delight and engage.

Joining Jenny on the bill are “The Oh Chays” – husband and wife Folk/Soul/Blues duo Kelly and Michael Authier (pronounced “Oh-Chay”). They’ve played stages, big and small, right across North America, wowing audiences with their spirited and versatile musicianship and their hilarious stage banter. They’re definitely worth checking out – and the perfect compliment to this evening of music. You don’t believe me? Check out our hilarious interview with The Oh Chays recorded at the 2014 Folk Music Ontario conference.
