STRATFORD’S DAYNA MANNING PLAYS LIVE AT THE WALLACEBURG LEGION BRANCH #18 THIS SATURDAY! DAYNA TAKES THE #SPOTLIGHT ALL THIS WEEK – HEARD DAILY AT 9:30AM DURING XS MORNINGS WITH JAY & ROBYN
Juno nominated artist Dayna Manning exemplifies the very best that Canadian Folk music can be.
Her cool clear voice along with her insightful songs represent a history of Canadian musical art that goes back to the early ’60s and sounds just as vital today.
A modern renaissance artist, Dayna recently produced Trent Severn’s third album “Portage”, designed the Stratford Festival’s best selling 60th anniversary t-shirt, and just produced her latest album “Morning Light” with the help of Stratford Festival alumnus Ben Bolt-Martin arranging for local chamber orchestra.
She recently penned her chronicle memoir through song, “Many Moons: A Songwriter’s Memoir” which was released by Blue Moon Publishers in October 2019.
In 2016 Dayna founded the “Folk Army”, a private music instruction academy in Stratford Ontario. The Folk Army’s mission is to empower young girls to make a positive change in their communities through leadership, creativity, thoughtful performance, and positive self-esteem. She is currently producing Folk Army alumni Hannah Thomas’s debut album, “Christmas All Year Long” with an entirely local cast of fabulous musicians.
