About JMI


Jensen Music International is a Canadian booking agency dedicated to presenting some of the finest folk and blues musicians and singer-songwriters from around the world.

Kate and Anna McGarrigle

We are very proud to have worked with artists like Pete Seeger, Johnny Clegg, Jerry Jeff Walker, Bruce Cockburn, The Rankin Sisters, Sylvia Tyson, Mick Taylor and Kate & Anna McGarrigle.

Rolling Stones lead guitarist, Mick Taylor

At JMI, we have built our roster slowly and steadily, looking for very special acts who fall within the folk and blues genres. We are far from being the biggest agency in the country, but artist for artist, we feel our roster is as fine as any in North America. JMI is not so much about quantity as it is about quality. We are a very hands-on agency, working closely with artists and presenters to produce tours that make sense and help to build markets and careers.

JMI accepts unsolicited packages but due to the high volume of mail we receive from artists seeking representation (over 300 solicitations a year), we cannot get back to everyone who makes a submission.
