Les Casson

Les Casson spent over a dozen years as the percussionist for the critically acclaimed folk ensemble, Night Sun. Anchoring their “superb rhythm ensemble” (SOCAN), she is featured on the band’s best known releases—Home (1996), One Moment of Grace (1999) and Drive (2004)—weaving drum kit, hand percussion, and vocals. Having lugged her gear all across Canada and the Northern US, from major festivals to tiny coffee houses (and everywhere in between), Les now brings her “innate sense of rhythm” (Greenman Review) to the Janes.
