For this installment of Music Monday, I thought I would introduce another Maritime artist (okay, I do have a bit of a bias, being an East coast girl myself), the lovely and seriously talented Jenn Grant. You may have noticed her performing on Parliament Hill this past Canada Day, or as a special musical guest on the Vinyl Café, if you are a fan of Stuart McLean's show, like I am.
One of my favourites Jenn Grant tunes is her song "Dreamer" (video above). You might recognize it since it happens to be the title opener for the CBC Show, Heartland (I am a little embarassed to admit, I love it. Anything with horses, I am sold).
Two of these three videos are from a special set of recordings called Southern Souls, where various musicians performed and recorded some of their tunes in a locale of their choosing. I love the authentic feeling (in addition to the lovely tunes) of these videos and had to share.
Born on PEI (Win!) but currently hailing from Nova Scotia, Jenn Grant is starting to really come into her own in the world of Canadian music, and I for one am glad. I personally love her dreamy folky sound and am pleased to see a fellow Maritimer making it. Hope you enjoy her tunes as much as I do!
