Juno-Award winning singer-songwriter Ruth Moody, of the Wailin’ Jennys, will perform one show in Juneau on Friday, March 7 at 8 p.m. at Thunder Mountain High School, as part of the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council’s 2013-2014 concert series.

Born in Australia and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Moody comes from a musical family and has been singing, playing and performing since she was a child. She is a founding member of the internationally renowned trio The Wailin’ Jennys, and former lead singer of the Canadian roots band Scruj MacDuhk. She has performed in sold-out venues around the world, received five Juno awards nominations, and has appeared more than a dozen times on “A Prairie Home Companion.”

Moody’s Juneau concert is part of a national tour following the spring release of “These Wilder Things,” her second solo release, and follows a European tour with Mark Knopfler. “These Wilder Things” features a collection of original songs with performances by special guests including Knopfler, Jerry Douglas, Crooked Still’s Aoife O’Donovan and fellow Wailin’ Jennys members Nicky Mehta and Heather Masse. Songs range from the gospel-influenced “Trouble and Woe” to the bluegrass-flavored “One Light Shining” to the Celtic feel of “Life Is Long.” The album also includes a stripped-down folk arrangement of Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark.”

Moody has been recognized by the USA Songwriting Competition and the International Songwriting Competition for several of her compositions, including “One Voice,” a signature song for The Wailin’ Jennys. Her song “Storm Comin,” from the Wailin’ Jennys’ latest album, “Bright Morning Stars,” recently won first place in the gospel category at the International Songwriting Competition.

Tickets to the Juneau show are $5-$24 and available through www.jahc.org.
