From frenzied boot-stomping Celtic, east coast, roots and rhythm styles, to world fusion, rock, jazz and blues, Jennie shines on every stage she meets. Bice began playing fiddle at the age of four around the family piano, and never stopped. Currently recording and performing on the west coast of Canada with Roads Unknown, Strong Bow & Wry, Ari Neufeld, Boris Sichon, John Welsh, The Doolins and many others, Jennie also loves taking time out every once in a while to teach workshops at a few of BC’s fantastic music and theatre camps. Bice has a B.A. Honours Degree In Dramatic Arts from the University of Windsor, with a strong background in theatre studies, improvisation, acting, dramaturgy, scenery, lighting, sound tech, costumes, stage management and arts administration over the course of her career in many aspects of the arts.

As well as her musical and theatrical interests, Jennie has been involved with many community arts organizations.
