Coming from North Carolina, by way of Florida, New York, Scotland, and Ireland; she’s a proud reflection of North Carolina’s eclectic mixture of musical styles.

Jennifer studies as a Scottish dancer (Jo Moore-Kalat School of Scottish Dance), Gaelic singer (University of Edinburgh), music educator (from East Carolina University) and her experiences living in Ireland & Scotland, have shaped her into a performing artist for the Celtic culture in NC. She makes distinct connections with the Celtic roots in North Carolina through the music and dance. Jennifer presents programs & workshops for schools throughout NC to encourage the growth of arts-in-education.
"She has a purity of tone that I have come to equate with the quintessential female Celtic singer"-Donna Adams-Profeta, Celtic Harpist
A trained singer and pianist in classical music, growing up in Eastern NC, Jennifer was influenced by her father’s love for Motown, R&B and what Carolinian’s call "beach music". Daughter of a Music teacher and niece of a Scottish Highland Dance teacher, Jennifer received training in both music and dance from a young age. Upon graduating with a music degree from East Carolina University, Jennifer traveled to Scotland to study abroad on a Rotary International Scholarship. She continued to spend summers in Scotland studying Gaelic music and Dance with singers such as Mairi Mac Innes, Ishbel MacAskill and Roddy Campbell. She then moved to the rugged North West coast of Ireland and to live the culture and learn more about the music.
Sponsored by Swansboro United Methodist Church, she founded the annual Christmas Benefit Concert for lids4kids. Her purpose is to increase awareness of this wonderful program that provides hats for Children undergoing chemotherapy and radiation, and to raise money for the program to expand outside of North Carolina. https://www.tradebit.com
