Jenny Lester is a dynamic Canadian Bluegrass performer and recording artist who has established herself as an important singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.
Her original songs are carefully crafted in the bluegrass convention while at the same time displaying a contemporary freshness and vitality that breathes new life into the fabled "high lonesome" sound. Jenny is a veteran stage performer from Smithers BC, beginning on the fiddle at age eight and continuing on to become a notable rhythm guitarist and bassist. Bands include Driftwood Canyon Family Band, Just For Fun, Dark Horse, John Reischman & Bluegrass Signal Hungry Hill and the Bluegrass Made in Taiwan.
"Lester has a full commanding voice with a lot of dynamic and emotional range, bringing the requisite strength to an up tempo original like 'One Way Track', then, turning more ornamental to bring out the nuances of a slower song like Paul Kennerly's 'First In Line'." - Bluegrass Unlimited
"The genre that Kentuckian Bill Monroe founded in the 1930s may not have the cachet that high-processed pop music enjoys these days but, if it did, Jenny Lester would be hailed as an emerging Celine Dion." - Vancouver Province
"Talented and beautiful songstress . . . a clear, pure and powerful voice that is unique to her." - Bluegrass Canada
"Jenny Lester is just great!" - Dugg Simpson, artistic director, Vancouver Folk Festival
"Top Canadian act . . . top-notch album" - The National Post
