The Wailin' Jennys - SOLD OUT

I *heart* The Wailin' Jennys, and was thrilled to learn this show was coming to none other than the Freight and Salvage Coffeehouse in Berkeley, a nonprofit community arts organization dedicated to promoting public awareness and understanding of traditional music. The Wailin' Jennys are a Canadian roots and folk group known for their flawless harmonies. They are Nicky Mehta, Ruth Moody, and Heather Masse - each of whom you may have heard of on your own. Heather is also a jazz singer that regularly performs on Prairie Home Companion.

For a taste of The Wailin' Jennys, check out this live audio of them performing a beautiful song, Bold Riley. I get goosebumps every time I hear this, or any of their songs live (they are one of the those bands where the studio album just does not do them justice):

Tickets are $38.50 or less (if you're a member of Freight and Salvage, a senior citizen, or under 25), and you can buy them here:

    Hi all,

    Just check in to provide my cell:[masked]-9305. I'll be out front by 6:45 PM with a little meet up sign. Again, if you decide not to show, please either change your RSVP here, or feel free to text me. I'm just trying to avoid hanging out in front waiting!

    Cheers, Emily

    Hey Wailin' Jennys fans - just checking in, please do change your RSVP if you are now not coming (we've had quite a few no shows recently, and just trying to get folks to alert me before). Doors open at 7 PM at the Freight and Salvage, and I'd like to get a good seat. So I will be out front by 6:45 PM with the idea of heading in around 7 PM. I will have a 'meetup sign.'

    They have beer/wine and coffee drinks in there too - so I figured if we get there early, we can have a drink inside.

    Hi all, I've seen a few recent RSVPs and I wanted to make sure folks know that if you haven't gotten a ticket to this show (Saturday show), it is sold out. I've changed the details in the title so it's clear. Sorry about that!

    Hi everyone,

    I hope you got your tickets by now - as this show is now sold out. If you haven't gotten a ticket, please change your RSVP to "no" at some point, so I can have an accurate count of who to expect. More information closer to the date about meet up time and location. For those that did not get a ticket - it appears there are still tickets for Friday's (December 6) show. You may go with that, and suggest a separate meet up event to lead a group that night if you want. BTW - if you do so, you are are the organizer of that event, so be prepared to give meet up instructions (it's easy). Also, please do not buy a ticket for Friday, then RSVP to this event - it makes it confusing for me the organizer. For some reason, folks have done that in the past, then are counted as 'no shows' to the event.
