Canadian folk trio Trent Severn kicked-off their 2018 Ontario concert tour on April 19, 2018 at the Kineto Theatre in Forest, Ontario. Next on the band’s agenda is a concert at the Mary Webb Centre in Highgate on May 12, 2018.
Based in Stratford, Ontario, Trent Severn showcases the talents of Emm Gryner (bass, vocals), Dayna Manning (vocals, guitar, banjo) and Lindsay Schindler (fiddle, vocals). Two-time Canadian Folk Music Award nominees, Trent Severn’s individual band members have four Juno Award nominations among them.
The folk trio’s trademark vocal blend and stripped-down approach to modern life in Canada has landed them hundreds of festival and series appearances; a feature article in MacLean’s Magazine in 2013 and the Harrowsmith Almanac in 2017; national television performances; a CBC Radio One live recording in 2014; and the honour of performing an original arrangement of “O Canada” during a Canada Day flag raising on Parliament Hill.
With songs about trains, small-town charms, Canadian personalities and even a maple syrup heist, Trent Severn shares stories about the goodness and beauty of our nation. Since the release of their self-titled debut album in 2012, the folk trio has won over fans from coast to coast.
