Jack Pine

Jack Pine returns to the Grassroots Festival once again… I mean, he’s here every year because he’s also our head sound tech, but now he’s back *on* our stage with new songs to play and some old favs too! Jack Pine’s dynamic and gritty acoustic style has been infecting the Ottawa music scene for over a decade. His songs lash out at the source of all darkness, love up on the natural world, and reach for the heart of the wretch. His high energy folk band Jack Pine and The Fire have performed to big crowds at all of those other big name capitol city festivals. And together they’ve released critically acclaimed albums that received nominations at the CFMA and JUNO awards and #1 on CKCU year end lists. Not to be missed!
