Jenn Grant To Receive Rooted to the Island Award

January 2, 2013 | Grantís third album, The Beautiful Wild, released in September 2012, captures finding the courage to lose oneself in the wilderness. The critically acclaimed album features several east coast musicians, notably Islanders Kinley Dowling, Rose Cousins and Dan Ledwell.

JUNO nominee Grantís intuitive ability to express emotion has helped to define her as one of Canadaís premier vocalists. Grant, who currently lives in Halifax, is pleased to be receiving the award.

ďI am honoured to be an islander and to be part of such a vibrant musical community. Music PEI is a wonderful organization and I really look forward to all of the performances happening this week. Iím so happy to be part of it.Ē
