Jennie Bice

Jennie Bice has been involved with music in some capacity all of her life. With a combination of classical and fiddle training from an early age, it was not uncommon for her to be active in both orchestras and old-time fiddle contests. Team that up with a family that loved (and still loves) to sing around the piano together and it results in a voracious appetite for jamming and collaborative music creation. Bice has performed with dozens of bands over the years, starting out professionally in Windsor, Ontario playing with bands such as, “Celtic Cross.” “Lynne and the Rebels” and “Skye Blue” as well as acting in many theatrical roles in summer and stock theatre companies.

An opportunity arose to move out to British Columbia to explore some new musical territory, and so she spent a few years in Vancouver where she created the band “Prydwen”, a celtic folk rock touring group that performed throughout Canada and much of Scotland. It was a Prydwen mainstage performance at the Mission Folk Festival that inspired a moved to that B.C. city, and Bice has called Mission home ever since, where she and husband Joe Samorodin have built Annwyn Studios. a multi functioning recording, teaching and rehearsal space.

Currently, Jennie is performing with 12 bands, the most active of which are listed on the Bands page of this site. She is also teaching fiddle students in studio, and in workshops at festivals and fiddle camps, and is in high demand for recording projects worldwide.
