Penny and the Bandits is Twin Cities-based performer Jen Scott

She writes short catchy indie-folk character and story songs

If Andrew Bird is a beautifully refined scalpel, or if that guy from the Mountain Goats is a Dungeon Master, Jen is a tiny hammer.  

She's played at a variety of Twin Cities venues, from theaters to the Garage of the Performing Arts. She also produces the music/words show There's A Crack in Everything at the Bryant-Lake Bowl Theater

Penny and the Bandits is also sometime collective of musicians, featuring James Rone, Samantha Baker-Harris, Will Roberts, and Josh Kaplan
