Ottawa's Festival of Ideas Since 1997

Jack Pine

Jack Pine

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 and The Fire's newest album Left To Our Devices explores all our relationships - with ourselves, with each other, and with the earth. ''A record you'd run into a burning barn to save'' (Author, columnist, Sean Michaels) Jack hollers and howls like 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.
