    • Also Saturday, “Polk Salad Annie” songster Tony Joe White brings his Louisiana-inspired swamp music to Southland Ballroom in Raleigh. The show is at 7 p.m. For more information: southlandballroom.com.

In the past decade, The Wailin’ Jennys have expanded their audience from their home base in Winnipeg, Manitoba, to throughout Canada and the U.S. The group has been awarded two JUNO awards (Canada’s version of the Grammy) and have been frequent guests on Garrison Keillor’s radio show, “A Prairie Home Companion.” Voicing three-part harmonies to a repertoire of folk and country, and backed by instrumental brilliance, the Jennys have earned accolades as one of the most popular acts in today’s traditional music. On Saturday, the trio rolls into Durham for a PineCone-sponsored concert at the Carolina Theatre. For tickets and directions, see www.carolinatheatre.org.
