Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House. Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House is the third album by the Canadian folk trio The Wailin' Jennys. In the last week of August 2008, the alt-folk group The Wailin Jennys arrived at the Mauch Chunk Opera House with the goal of laying down a live recording to capture their performances in the famous Mauch Chunk Opera House, in the town of Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania. Precise harmonies are the hallmark of The Wailin Jennys.

That's especially remarkable because "Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House" was recorded during a single day, rather than being compiled from an entire tour. But maybe that's really not so remarkable: as thousands of concert-goers and millions of Prairie Home Companion radio listeners have discovered, every single Jennys performance is magical. Finally some of that live magic has been captured in a recording. This is the Jennys' first live album. The recording is very good for a live performance. The Wailin' Jennys sing wonderful harmonies.

The Wailin' Jennys originated out of a guitar shop in Winnipeg in what was supposed to be a one-time performance, but since then have become one of the world's premier acts in contemporary roots music. The original line-up consisting of Nicky Mehta, Ruth Moody, and Cara Luft captured audiences with their obvious chemistry and stunning harmonies. The Wailin' Jennys debut release 40 Days was a hit and paved the way for them to become one of the most beloved groups to emerge out of the folk scene. After touring behind 40 Days, Cara Luft decided to leave the band to pursue her solo. The album stepped away from the traditional folk realm and into the worlds of alt-country, pop, and rock.
