SJ Scouten concert
Host: Blue Door Concerts
Description: On Bowen Island BC, Sarah Jane Scouten began playing folk music at age 12, happy to forgo a Friday night house party for an all-night kitchen jam. Hank Williams and Stan Rogers were her greatest inspirations, both a staple at Sunday morning pancake breakfast and afterward, singing bluegrass and gospel music with her father. Her talent for performing came as naturally as running, and as chance would have it, so emerged her talent for songwriting. Sarah Jane pairs sturdy, infectious melodies with lyrics that are candid, poignant and flirtatious. Now living in Montreal, Sarah Jane recorded and co-produced her first album, Magpie Waltz (Independent) in 2011, at Concordia University's Loyola Chapel. With a discerning taste for fine musicians, she sought out the fresh talents of Sarah Frank on fiddle, Luke Fraser on mandolin and Mathieu Lacombe on the upright bass to join her brilliant string band. Trilling mandolin, lavish bass and down-right bad-ass fiddle playing bring out the best in Scouten's authentic sound. The all-string, all-acoustic record, whose “narratives and arrangements make for an impressive genre LP” (Montreal Mirror), has flavours of Joni Mitchell, Emmylou Harris, Graham Parsons and a wealth of bluegrass and old-time music. This is the 4th show in the Home Routes 2017-2018 season. Tickets and more info available by e-mailing info@bluedoorconcerts.ca or texting 403-554-1281. Facebook page at facebook.com/bluedoorconcerts
