THE JENNIFER LICKO BAND presents ‘CELTIC SUMMER NIGHTS’
After a huge success in December of sold-out concerts in the Carolinas, The Jennifer Licko Band is returning in July of 2016 for a week of ‘Celtic Summer Nights’ .
A Carolina girl, residing in Brazil after spending 6 years living in Ireland and Scotland makes Jennifer the quintessential International singer songwriter. Give her one minute on stage, and her southern roots shine through making every audience member feel as they are a part of her life and always have been.
Audiences can expect to hear that familiar Celtic Sound in the musical arrangements and melodic celtic style. Some songs are sung in English and others in Scots Gaelic. Like all good songs, the music that the Jennifer Licko band chooses to perform has a story that audiences will want to hear.

"Jennifer Licko could very well be the heir-apparent to Canada’s Loreena McKennitt and Clannad’s Maire Brennan,” says Celtic Life Magazine.
On this tour audiences will enjoy Jennifer’s lively band that includes two time All-Ireland fiddle champion, Andrew Finn Magill, who is another North Carolina native also living in Brazil.
“Andrew Magill is a leading fiddler in a new generation of musicians. He plays with incredible versatility and is accomplished in a variety of styles. More important than his technical prowess is the fact that he approaches music with deep insight, sensitivity and respect.”— Martin Hayes, Irish fiddle master
Those familiar with Jennifer’s Christmas Concerts will be familiar with the Irish Guitar wiz Patsy O’Brien. His background credits in accompanying Celtic soloists include Eileen Ivers, Cherish the Ladies singer Cathie Ryan and piping legend Paddy Keenan.

Jennifer’s most recent album ‘A Thousand Curses Upon Love’ was recently voted by Celtic Music Radio as ‘Celtic Album of the Year’ and is receiving national radio airplay. The Irish Edition writes, “At times, Jennifer Licko has a haunting vibrato in her voice, at times she attacks songs with a deep feeling, but she always attracts as she sings."
