About the event

Women of the Forest Concert Series

When you meet her, Jenie Thai is composed, pleasant,  amiable, friendly, and — she won’t like the word, but you have to live  with it — sweet. She has an open face, long hair, a ready smile and an  easy laugh. And she is also tough, and gritty, and plays barrelhouse  piano steeped in the blues — and if that wasn’t enough to get your head  around, she also writes and sings tough and tender ballads, direct from  her heart to yours.

Who she sounds like: Always a fool’s game, this — imagine a singer,  songwriter and player touched by the music of Tom Waits, Memphis Slim,  Nina Simone, Bonnie Raitt, and some people say she sounds a little like  Eva Cassidy (“I do?” she queries). She listens to old blues, edgy indie  artists, sixties r&b, piano players with chops and soul, and the  classic American songwriters.

Sandra Bouza will open for Jenie. Sandra Bouza is a  voice of power and passion, with songs that touch your heart and fuel  your soul, she is a performer to remember. She has a lot to offer  through her music and life experience. Having spent a large part of her  life in Spain, as well as travelling to far corners of the world,  Sandra’s worldly vision is evident in her songwriting. Sandra lets her  stories breathe in songs that are deeply personal. She was the 2019  winner of the Toronto Blues Society’s Talent Search and represented  Toronto in the 2020 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee  earning her way to the semi finals and carrying her dynamic  representation of the Toronto blues scene to the world. She also  participated in the Hall Island Artist residency here in the Haliburton  Highlands and you will be able to hear a full concert of hers on August  15 at the Haliburton Rotary Music in the Park
