Although trained at the New England Conservatory of Music as a jazz singer, New York singer/songwriter Heather Masse is equally versed in a variety of American song traditions, which influences her more prevalent work in folk, pop, and bluegrass.

A member of the Billboard-charting folk group, The Wailin’ Jennys, she has performed at hundreds of venues across the world. She has been a frequent guest on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion, both as a solo performer and as a member of The Jennys. On the show, she has collaborated with artists such as Elvis Costello, Wynton Marsalis, Sheryl Crow, Renee Fleming, and Emmylou Harris.

Jed Wilson grew up in Gladstone, Oregon and began studying piano at a young age. As a teenager, Wilson was an active performer on the Portland jazz scene at haunts such as the Typhoon Lounge, and won prestigious awards (including Downbeat Magazine’s ‘Best High School Jazz Soloist’ honor three years in a row). He received a bachelor’s degree in jazz performance from the New England Conservatory, where he performed in a long-standing musical partnership with jazz vocalist Dominique Eade.

“Masse exhibits impeccable phrasing and a lush sound that suggests the sensuousness of Sophie Milman shot through with somber, Sarah Vaughan threads.” —  Jazz Times
