Jenica Rayne and Lynne Hanson
Jenica and Lynne have been performing together since 2009. They play as a duo and with additional players. Over the years they have developed a great chemistry (relaxed, lots of humour) and an excellent vocal blend. Their repertoire includes originals (from both Rayne and Hanson) and a wide variety of covers. Two of their regular venues are The Waring House in Picton and The Stonewater in Gananoque.
The Calamity Janes
Stomping fiddle. Rich vocals. Distinctive songwriting. Combine these with some of Kingston’s most accomplished musical women, and you get Calamity Janes. Established in 2009, The Janes are (from left to right): Les Casson, Jenica Rayne, Lynne Hanson (Chivaree), and Danielle Lennon.
While Jenica loves the intimacy of performing as a solo artist, she has mastered the art of creating ensembles to fit the venue: duos, trios and bands of up to 10 players. Her versatility as a performer and band leader allows her to be booked for house concerts, intimate venues and concert halls, private parties, benefit concerts, music education events and festivals.
Over the years she has worked on stage and in the recording studio with many incredible musicians, often hiring local musicians while touring across Canada.
