Celtic Christmas Concert REVIEWED
Thanks to Brad Rich at the Tideland News in Swansboro for attending my Celtic Christmas Concert in Eastern North Carolina and for the review!
Here are some quotes from Brad's awesome review!
Jennifer Licko ushers in Christmas, Celtic Style.
"Licko, who when not playing acoustic guitar or simply singing played the bodhran (irish drum), was equally at home with the Irish and Scottish compositions and the more standard American fare; it was obvious that if she chose to stick to country or folk music, she could easily be a household name in pop music."
"Noble, who lives in South Florida, shone with several excellent solos, clearly at home in any style, and Foley displayed his formidable, award-widding fiddle chops on a number or Irish reels, which might not have been holiday tunes, but fit perfectly into the good-time feel of the two-hour show."
"Licko was clearly grateful to the hometown crowd and to the sponsors and others who made the show possible. She particularly thanked Julia Wax and Emerald Isle Realty - the main sponsor - for providing the house where Foley and Noble stayed and where they hastily rehearsed for a show that turned out to be simultaneously polished and personal."
THANK YOU TIDELAND NEWS AND BRAD RICH!

Just wanted to give a big thanks out to this year's Christmas Concert Sponsors. Travel and accommodation is a big expense and we couldn't make this concert series happen without the awesome sponsors we have!
Thanks to Emerald Isle Realty, All About Quilting, JD technologies and JD Coaching!

Performing with Piper, Dick Hensold
Since our move to Minnesota, I have met a lot of really fabulous musicians in the area. Luckily (or by fate) one of them happens to be a fantastic piper, Dick Hensold. We have teamed up to create a duo of Scottish Gaelic song and pipe music. This should be fun!

baby is here and mommy is ready to play music
Getting back into the game! I recently enjoyed meeting some of the great Irish musicians in the Twin Cities! Brian Miller, Daithi Sproule and Dick Hensold...and many more. It was great to meet you all and I'm looking forward to more nights of Celtic music here in Minnesota!

Celtic Christmas Concert Series
The 2011 Celtic Christmas Concert Series in North Carolina was a huge hit! We gave concerts to some awesome fans who filled the concert halls. It was wonderful performing with Bob Noble again! I also enjoyed sharing a stage with Bob O'Donovan as he shared his wit and talent on the fiddle and mandolin. I am looking forward to providing more concerts for the 2012 holiday season!
