So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
Halifax based Jenn Grant doesn’t get out to Vancouver that often: it’s a long way from home, across this great big country we call home. Her last visit paired her with fellow Six Shooter Recording artist Justin Rutledge for one of the most fantastic nights of live music I had in 2010 at the quiet and beautiful St. James Community Square in Vancouver. On this visit Jenn played the Biltmore Cabaret and the show was quite a bit less quiet.
Jenn’s album Honeymoon Punch was long-listed for the 2011 Polaris Music Prize and the night was full of material from it as well as the often overlooked but incredibly beautiful Echoes.
Playing with a full band made for a stark contrast with her last visit, when she was accompanied only on violin. Upbeat bouncy tunes like Oh My Heart and Getcha Good sounded fuller and kept the night moving along. Parliament of Owls lead to a crowd pleasing moment with the audience hooting along.
As entertaining as the music was with witty stage banter. Watch her Awkward Interviews at CBC Radio 3 to get an idea of what it’s like. Jenn’s funny tales of life in a shared house in Halifax are worth the ticket price alone and as much a guarantee of a good time as any other live act I’ve seen. Now off touring back east, as they say out here, catch up with Jenn as soon as you can.
