Jack Pine is “driving”, “dynamic”, “giddy, bittersweet” Alt-Folk Singer-songery at it’s best. Nominated at the 2019 JUNOs and the 2018 Canadian Folk Music Awards, Jack Pine is without his band The Fire for this intimate performance at his favourite local venue, Irene’s Pub. He won’t be alone though, as Joe McDonald will be joining him on guitar for a never before heard duo of rootsy Ottawa talent.
Jack hollers and howls like a lone wolf, spitting wry words and tall tales, while strumming his mandolin furiously, then softly. He sings songs of lost souls and forgotten truths, with lyricism that blends vivid and powerful imagery with quirky wordplay, dark humour, and biting social commentary.
