Come March, the Fox will host folk-music sensations the Wailin’ Jennys. Drawing on bluegrass and other forms of North American Roots Music, their visit gives us an opportunity to look (and listen) deeper into the musical tradition they’re part of. So join us on Zoom or on the Fox stage, a few weeks before the Jennys do, to hear some tunes and get a deeper understanding and appreciation of the musical roots that give rise to their music, and likely so much of the music you know and love. Please register above.
