3/4/2011 Jenny raps about the upcoming tour with Bruce Cockburn..
“In the eighties a group of gardeners landed on the small town where I grew up and they brought with them the music of Bruce Cockburn. I was a budding musician in my last year of high school, poised to leap into the world outside small town family life. It was a big time for me and Bruce’s songs had all the courage and adventure and romance I was looking for. I think I listened to Dancing In The Dragon’s Jaw almost every day of my sixteenth year.
So to meet him twenty years later at Town Hall in New York City was a great coming-full-circle moment. We were both there performing as part of the Mountain Stage radio broadcast and had some time backstage to talk. I told him how much I loved his music and to my suprise the admiration flowed both ways. He actually had my recordings, many of them! The following week he came to see me at The Village Vanguard, and soon enough we began playing together, writing together, and recording together. Two years later here we are, about to set out on an adventure over and back across North America.
I’ll be opening the night with a solo set, then joining him for live renditions of many of the songs from Small Source Of Comfort plus other songs from his songbook. He’s also asked that we play three or four of my songs – at his request two of those will be The Littlest Prisoner (a song from the perspective of a pregnant inmate) and Albert (an instrumental ode to the great avant garde saxophonist Albert Ayler).
My solo set… Performers talk about the give-and-take with an audience but you never feel that more than when you’re up there alone. You’re the tiny hole in the universe where all the magic stuff comes through, you’re driving a jumbo jet with six thousand passengers. I’ll bring what I have – my fiddle, some good words, a love of improvisation, and see what happens.”
