Preservation New Jersey welcomes Canadian indie folk singer-songwriter Annie Sumi to the 1867 Sanctuary.
“If you’d like to hear the future of contemporary, Canadian folk music, take a listen to the sophomore release from Annie Sumi” – Penguin Eggs Magazine, 2018
Ontario-based Annie Sumi (anniesumi.com) is an ethereal-folk artist with a unique ability to capture the subtleties of nature and spin them into melodies. Her latest release, In the Unknown, is a collection of stories that speak to the journey of the human experience. Since the release of her debut album, she has received nominations for “New/Emerging Artist of the Year” (Canadian Folk Music Awards, 2018), “Best Singer-Songwriter” (TIMAs, 2015), “New/Emerging Artist of the Year” (Hidden Roots Collective, CFMAs, 2017), and more. Accompanied by Jillian Sauerteig and Neil Whitford across the Northeastern United States, this trio has developed a soundscape that playfully explores the wilderness of Canada.
Neil Whitford (Electric Guitar, Toronto, ON)’s guitar work and use of hardware has enabled him to create ethereal soundscapes. He has played with artists around the world including Chloe Charles, ECHLO, Ninja Funk Orchestra, Vivienne Wilder, and more. Trained in the Jazz Program at the University of Toronto, this prairie-born guitarist has had an astounding career!
Born in Saint John, New Brunswick, Jillian Sauerteig (Cello, Etobicoke, ON), is a world class cellist. She has played in orchestras all around the world, and composed arrangements for various artists. Her most recent work has been in collaboration with Canadian writers Mappe Of, The Lifers, and Jojo Worthington.
