Jennifer Licko Shelton

Location: R.A. Fountain

From our promo for this concert:

Licko, who grew up in Swansboro and studied voice at ECU’s school of music, has been living in Brazil for nearly two years. She plays Fountain as part of a two-week tour of the southeast, before returning to Brazil, where she performs regularly in and around Porte Alegre.

Licko accompanies herself on guitar, keyboard, and Irish drum. Her concerts always include several ancient songs sung in original Gaelic.

Released last year, Licko’s fourth CD, A Thousand Curses Upon Love, is a mix of classic Celtic songs and contemporary tunes written by several of the biggest names in Celtic music today.
