Jennifer Kimball and The Wayfaring Strangers

Today’s musical pick is Jennifer Kimball, a singer-songwriter from Somerville, MA. You can listen to a small clip [860KB MP3 file] of one of my favourite songs, An Ordinary Solider.

Jennifer is a former member of The Story, a duo she shared with Jonatha Brooke (who is also a great artist).

She’s also a member of The Wayfaring Strangers, a “band, an album, a project, and a new way to play American music” that includes Matt Glaser, Andy Statman, John McGann, Jennifer Kimball, Bruce Barth, Lucy Kaplansky, Tony Trischka and Jim Whitney. You can listen to [rather poor] audio clips of their album Shifting Sands of Time at the Rounder Records website. I especially like High on a Mountain. Jennifer Kimball signs on the cut Funeral in my Brain.
