Bird City is the banjo/tenor guitar project of Jenny Mitchell, a Guelph, Ontario-based songwriter who previously performed as Jenny Omnichord and fronted the band The Barmitzvah Brothers among her many other musical projects.
With Winnowing, the debut album by Bird City, Jenny moves beyond her quirky Omnichord persona, playing sparse, personal songs on the banjo and tenor guitar. Jenny has been developing these exposed and poetic songs of paranoia, heartbreak and self-examination for nearly 15 years and is now bringing them to the audience they deserve.
