All Neil All Night
All Neil All Night is a celebration
of the music of Neil Young, played by Calgary's top 'roots-rockers'. The band easily
moves from the laid-back acoustic material synonymous with Neil's early years to
the 'arena rock' that inspired a generation of grunge rockers.

Sarah Jane Scouten, The Bitterweed Draw
“I like her songs, each
one has a great line or two that jump out and slap you in the face. She can do funny
and she can do sad, there’s just something special in her stanzas that are
better than most. Picture a feisty 12 year old Tom boy in a dress gripping a sling
- C.R. Avery
“Sarah Jane Scouten is the real new deal. New songs that seem instantly familiar,
written in the old time style. Beautiful delivery and phrasing, imaginative narratives,
and excellent musicianship. Sarah Jane is not to be missed.”
- Sheesham Crow, Sheesham and Lotus
At age 5, Sarah Jane Scouten was sitting on the dining room table, singing “Lace
and Pretty Flowers,” by Canadian folk and country musician, Willie P. Bennett.
On Bowen Island BC, she picked up guitar at age 12, and soon was happy to forgo
a Friday night house party for an all-night kitchen jam. Hank Williams and Stan
Rogers were her greatest inspirations, both a staple at Sunday morning pancake breakfast
and afterward, singing bluegrass and gospel music with her father. Her talent for
performing came naturally, and as chance would have it, so emerged a knack for songwriting.
Sarah Jane pairs sturdy, infectious melodies with lyrics that are candid, poignant
and flirtatious, and “a flair for tying emotions to arresting images.”
(Penguin Eggs) She now travels all over North America to festivals and workshops,
gaining inspiration from contemporary and traditional folk musicians, as well as
an ever-expanding collection of stringed instruments.
Based in Montreal, Sarah Jane recorded and co-produced her first album, Magpie Waltz
(Independent) in 2011, at Concordia University’s Loyola Chapel. She sought
out the fresh talents of Sarah Frank on fiddle, Luke Fraser on mandolin and Mathieu
Lacombe on the upright bass to join her brilliant string band. Trilling mandolin,
lavish bass and down-right bad-ass fiddle playing bring out the best in Scouten’s
authentic sound. The all-string, all-acoustic record has flavours of Lucinda Williams,
Old Crow Medicine Show, John Prine, and a wealth of bluegrass and old-time music,
whose “narratives and arrangements make for an impressive genre LP”
(Montreal Mirror). The songs are faithful to a long-standing folk music tradition,
but often spill over into modern themes that are outspoken and edgy, from homelessness
to midwifery to tongue-in-cheek heartache songs and unabashed Canadiana.
Since the record’s release, Sarah Jane and her string band have opened for
Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary at Montreal’s Festival de Folk Sur le
Canal and toured the Yukon with Home Routes House Concert Series and across Canada.
Tour highlights for 2013 include performing at South Country Fair, Campbell Bay
Music Festival, Fire and Water Music Festival, Sorrento Bluegrass and Old-Time Festival
and being invited to play at the Princeton Traditional Music Festival for the third
