Jennifer Licko returns to Fountain General Store for a Celtic Christmas celebration on Friday night. She will be accompanied by two renowned instrumentalists, Dylan Foley on fiddle and Bob Noble on keyboards.
Jennifer Licko, who grew up in Swansboro and earned her BA in Music Education from ECU, has lived in Scotland, where she studied Gaelic singing, and in Ireland, where she studied traditional Irish accordion. During these stays, she performed often in pubs and at festivals, developing a reputation as one of the best interpreters of traditional Irish and Celtic music.
Dylan Foley is a 3-time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion who studied with Rose Flanagan and other giants of Irish fiddling. He currently lives in New York and attends SUNY-New Paltz.
Bob Noble, originally from Leicester, England, has been playing piano since he was 8 and winning talent competitions since he was 11. He has played professionally, touring Europe, since he was 18. He and his family currently live in Lake Worth, Florida.
Licko missed playing Fountain during last year’s East Carolina tour. “I’m really looking forward to getting back,” she said, “and to showing Dylan and Bob what a great music venue it is.”
