The Garret Sessions Presents
Wednesday 22nd January, 2014
En route to the 2014 Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow, British-Columbian singer-songwriter Jenny Ritter stops off in Essex to play The Garret Sessions with her acoustic trio.
Formerly a member of leading all-girl roots outfit The Gruff, Jenny Ritter stepped out solo in 2012 with her warmly-received, country/folk-hued debut album Bright Mainland, combining potently melodic, quirkily observational songwriting with seasoned guitar/banjo accompaniment and “a voice as clear as a mountain stream” (No Depression).
Jenny Ritter’s songs are aimed straight at the heart. While Bright Mainland is technically her debut solo album, it represents the culmination of many years spent deeply involved in music. Her childhood was steeped in music and dance, with a ballerina mother, and opera singer father. They lived deep in the woods of Vancouver Island, and when not ranging through the forest with big dogs, Jenny usually had her nose in a book. After high school, she hit the road with bands on tour across Canada and the US, and basically never came back. First playing accordion for the band Nicely and then as a guitarist and one of the main songwriters for the critically acclaimed roots country band The Gruff.
There are a limited number of places available for the January Session due to popular demand!
