The elegant, mystical and harmony-centered sound of the international folk trio The Wailin' Jennys returns to Sacramento this weekend. Members Ruth Moody, Nicky Mehta and Heather Masse are known for sharing their vocal talents on programs like NPR's "A Prairie Home Companion" and in folk circles around the world.
The group fuses contemporary and traditional folk into vocal ballads that conjure up the inner roots of Americana music. The Wailin' Jennys will be at the Crest Theater tonight. Founding member Nicky Mehta joins us ahead of the concert to talk about what's new.
