Lead Pipe Cinch

* * * * *

A harmonious and energetic blend of blues, folk, celtic, country and everything in between, Lead Pipe Cinch has a repertoire of original material, sprinkled with some of their favourite cover tunes from EmmyLou to Earle, Hiatt to Hank.

Ken Allen draws his inspiration from a wide variety of musical styles, Celtic, Blues, Mountain/ Old time country music, folk and rock to name a few, and leans heavily on a groove oriented style in his performing and writing, with a love for the driving beat. Ken's debut cd "Going to the Sun" reflects all of the above.

Jennifer Ives is a self-proclaimed "heartbreaker, mover and a shaker", a shy, retiring kind a girl, who broke her baby teeth listening to the Vienna Boys' Choir and Dixieland jazz, cut her first molars on Elvis, and her wisdom teeth listening to the Who, Hendrix and Joni Mitchell. Born the eldest into a family of musicians, Jives is blessed with a modicum of talent, and the nerve to use it!

Since 2007, appearances at Live From the Rock Folk Festival, the Orillia Opera House, Elmvale Maple Syrup Festival, Bobcageon Wine and Food Festival, Orillia Folk Society's FridayFolk, Groundswell Coffeehouse, Nancy Island, Celebrate Water Festival, Horseshoe Resort plus various and sundry venues have given Jennifer and Ken the opportunity to share the earthy/bluesy roots they enjoy.
