Canadian folk trio Trent Severn sing contemporary songs about our nation’s people and places with humour, humanity and heart. Their trademark vocal blend and stripped down approach to modern life in Canada has landed hundreds of festival and series appearances, a feature article in MacLean’s Magazine (2012), a feature in Harrowsmith Almanac (2016), national television performances, a CBC radio live recording (2014) and the honour of singing an original arrangement of ‘O Canada!’ on Parliament Hill for the Canada Day flag-raising (2013).
Comprised of Dayna Manning (guitar/banjo), Emm Gryner (bass), and Lindsay Schindler (fiddle), Trent Severn is a two time Canadian Folk Music Award nominated group, and the members have four Juno nominations among them. The group has released three albums to date; Portage (2017), Trillium (2015) and Trent Severn (2012).
Known for their collaborations, this list brings together both musicians and non-musicians alike, including the RCAF Snowbirds demonstration team (2015), inventor William Lishman (2015), The Rheostatics (2016), and Wiarton Willie (2018) to name a few. They are lucky enough to count Astronaut Chris Hadfield and legendary Guess Who frontman Burton Cummings as fans. Trent Severn can’t help but connect people and lift them up in the process.
