Jenny Fares is a songwriter from Mobile, Alabama who deeply appreciates the origins of songs and loves to deep dive into meanings and source. "When the Saints Go Marching In" reminds her of the Deep South and the power when a huge marching band shakes the bricks with beats and shrieks the pavement with horns until the loose screws rattle with the base. You feel it in your soul at Mardi Gras. There’s also all the times she sang this unifying song in community gatherings of all kinds. No author is known for this tune that originated in churches in the 1900s and found its way to jazz bands and funerals in New Orleans. She sang it through the streets of Asheville once with over 100 musicians and friends after a dear friend parted. When songs reach off the stage and are belted out in joyful chorus, Jenny feels this healing is divine. A gift. We hope the saints do go marching in.
