Versatility, originality and activism are the hallmarks of this year’s Hootenanny Band. All four members are singer-songwriters, multi-instrumentalists and vocalists from the Elizabeth Riley Band who bring a raw, contagious energy to their music that captivates and inspires audiences:

For Jen, Patricia, Sarah and Carmel, playing in Gil’s Hootenanny is a natural extension of their identity, as equity, social activism and social justice, combined with audience participation, are central to their performance style. As Jen says: “Our songs are routed in personal, social and political realities and infused with women’s lived experiences.”
