Event Description

Sarah Jane Scouten’s second full-length album “The Cape,” named after her childhood playground and a stormy seven-and-a-half minute long song by the same name, throws a wake for the things we won’t have back again. You’ll find it in the shameless nostalgia for place, time, lost loved ones, frayed family ties and bonds too strong to break.

A traditionalist at heart, she once again shows her signature flair for the roots of roots music, ranging from Western-swing, honky-tonk, Cajun and Appalachian string band music and a hint of the Maritimes. With respect for these roots, she writes from her own perspective, rather than taking on a persona or copying a style, and only writes about what she knows profoundly.

For the first time, Sarah Jane Scouten will be touring the West with her brilliant string band from Montreal. The four-piece have worked closely over the last several years, arranging all 11 tracks on The Cape as well as her first album Magpie Waltz. The new album was recorded and produced by Juno-nominee Andrew Collins (The Foggy Hogtown Boys, The Creaking Tree String Quartet and Annie Lou) at Sytesound Studio in Toronto and features Aaron Goldstein on pedal steel (City and Colour, Daniel Romano), Treasa Levasseur on accordion (Corin Raymond and the Sundowners), Sly Juhas on drums and Sarah Jane’s sister Anna Scouten lending her arresting blood-harmonies. Like the audible photo album it is, cover design for The Cape uses archival photographs from the Bowen Island Museum and Archives.

On Friday, May 2 the Rogue Folk Club will be hosting Sarah Jane’s Vancouver CD release at St James Hall.
