Jody Shenkarek

About This Project

Edmonton, AB


Jody started her musical career sometime in the early nineties as one of the founding members of Edmonton’s All Woman Brothers Band. Over the years Shenkarek has been part of numerous local groups: in 1995 or 96 she formed Jody and the Millcreek Boys; soon she formed a duo alongside Gavin Dunn, opening for such names as Richard Buckner, Corb Lund, and Jay Farrar. These days you can catch Shenkarek as part of Fear and Worry with  featuring on dobro and mandolin John Woroshchuk (dobro/mandolin), Tim Balash (bass) and Johnny Blerot (keys/accordian). As a seasoned veteran of Edmonton’s folk community, we’re thrilled to be bringing Jody Shenkarek to UP+DT 2016.
