Jenie Thai: September 6

Two-time Maple Blues Award nominee, Jenie Thai is a songwriter and pianist with an old-school soul and boogie-woogie style. Inspired by America’s great songwriters, she blends her love of classic R&B with a contemporary edge in tough but tender ballads and fiery house-rockers. Jenie’s sophomore album, Night on Fire, was released September 2018 with a sold-out show at Toronto’s Hugh’s Room Live. This concert was one of a number of successes she’s had in the last year — including standing ovation performances at Massey Hall and her debut at the Mariposa Folk Festival.
