Jenny Mitchell, The Troubadour Tour

 

23 June 2018 $15 Members $20 Non-members $5 Students with ID

After touring through the coast of Sweden, dozens of Irish pubs and countless Australian towns, it’s time for Jenny to hit the road in her homeland.

Hailing from Gore and influenced by the likes of Norah Jones and Gillian Welch, Jenny is a songwriter that blends alt-country, folk, and Americana into her own captivating style.

With songs wrapped in wisdom and wit, Jenny takes each audience through a journey of the bittersweet tang of leaving home, the fragility of first love & the importance of family.

The voice of a lioness, the soul of a sage,” Luka Bloom (Ireland)

The Troubadour Tour, named after track 10 of her new album Wildfires, will take Jenny’s folk-country goodness from the bottom to the top of Aotearoa.

“Troubadour is going to be a huge song for you,” Jesse Mulligan (RNZ)

On her first nationwide tour, you can expect heartbreakingly honest songs, a few “R” rolls, and cups of tea.
