Catch the Canadian Spirit on Eve of Canada Day with Acclaimed Ontario Folk Trio Trent Severn, eh?

Stratford, ON (June 13, 2016) Join acclaimed Ontario folk trio Trent Severn, who sing original, contemporary songs described as “Canadian history in harmony,” at Stratford’s Revival House on June 30, 2016 at 9:00 pm. The perfect way to catch the spirit of Canada Day!

Based in Stratford Ontario, Trent Severn showcases the talents of Dayna Manning (guitar, banjo, vocals), Emm Gryner (bass guitar, background vocals) and Lindsay Schindler (fiddle, background vocals).

The band composes beautifully-crafted, evocative songs that continue the deeply poetic legacy of true “red and white” pioneering troubadours, such as Stompin’ Tom Connors, Ian and Sylvia Tyson and Gordon Lightfoot. The talented southern Ontario trio planted their Maple Leaf flag deeply in the firmament of the Canadian roots music with a folk version of O Canada and Stealin’Syrup.

Twice nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award, Trent Severn takes its name from a famous Ontario waterway. Emm Gryner and Dayna Manning came together out of a shared desire to work with one another and by their common affinity for all that makes Canada special. Accomplished fiddle player Lindsay Schindler, who also performs with Canadian Celtic fusion band Rant Maggie Rant, joined the band in 2015, replacing the equally adept Laura C. Bates.

Over the last several years the band has appeared on CTV’s Canada AM; shared the stage with Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield; watched the RCAF Snowbirds demonstration team fly to their tune “Freedom,” while earning kudos from CBC Radio 2 Host Tom Power for their CD Trillium. The band was also featured in MacLean’s magazine under the headline “Trent Severn picks up where Stompin’ Tom left off,” the year we lost our treasured troubadour.

The band has two CDs to their credit: self-titled (2012) and Trillium (2015). Trillium sees Gryner, Manning and Schindler even more fully embracing “Canadian History and Harmony” with 10 beautifully crafted, profoundly evocative songs that are at times wistful, melancholic, contemplative, joyous but always thoughtful. The whole CD has an Ontario thread to it.
