Jenn Grant: “Music Connects Us All”

Jenn Grant believes that being able to create and share music is one of life’s greatest gifts and is the connector that binds us all. That very sentiment rings true through the PEI singer-songwriter’s music.

Grant’s newest offering, Compostela translates to ‘Field of Stars’ Or ‘Star Field’ – which comes from the legend that the dust of the pilgrims who walk the El Camino make up the stars that form the Milky Way. There’s a band of stars on Compostela, including Sarah Harmer, Buck 65, Ron Sexsmith, Rose Cousins, Doug Paisley, Don Kerr, Kim Harris, Stewart Legere, Justin Rutledge, Rachel Sermanni and Grant’s producer for her 2009 release ‘Echoes’ Jonathan Goldsmith. For the first time ever, Grant’s brother Daniel Grant, a Toronto based cinematographer performs with her, accompanying her velvety voice on songs like Spanish Moon with the soft touch of his charango playing. A subtle yet pulsing groove alongside moments of Spanish inspired guitar reflect an important journey:

Bringing with her a talented band of players who help to create the colours and textures of her captivating live show, Grant is keen to bring Compostela to the intimate setting of our OnStage format. If this sounds like just the thing you’d like to do on a Tuesday night, join us on March 3 at The Centre.
