Multi award winning New Zealand songwriter Jenny Mitchell is a storyteller with songs wrapped in wisdom and wit. Her music defies easy categorisation but if you admire music by genre-defying artists from Emmylou Harris to Kasey Chambers, you’ll love Jenny Mitchell.
Described by Rolling Stone as, “Her best work yet”, her new album, Tug of War, is a deep and emotional dive for the artist and the listener. Produced by Tasmania’s Matt Fell, it finds Jenny at her most raw and honest while creating a musical work that’s as rich and fertile as the farming country where she grew up.
No stranger to the road, Jenny has graced dozens of festival stages including Australia’s Maldon Folk Festival, Nannup Festival and, of course, the Tamworth Country Music Festival. At home in New Zealand she’s been on the Canterbury and Wellington Folk Festival bills and opened for acts including Tami Neilson, The Warratahs and Nadia Reid.
With a sound that No Depression describes as, “poetry that dominates a beautiful melody,” Jenny Mitchell is comfortable with a country twang or softly spoken ballad and is rapidly capturing fans across the globe.
Don’t miss this chance to see Jenny in Katikati on July 14th!
