Groups larger than two players are encouraged to contact the director (Jenni) to plan staging and get a longer set.
Spring 2021 has been beautiful in the San Luis Valley, and summer is shaping up to be spectacular. I am so happy to have an early-afternoon Saturday concert series in Crestone, featuring mountain dulcimer and guitar with my original songs as well as favorite ballads and oldies. Check out my “Shows” page for details!
In August 2015, Tom Peal and I moved to Del Norte, CO, close to the top of our beloved Rio Grande. Now I’ve returned to an active schedule of performing with new original songs and lots of my favorite Americana covers. My productions in the San Luis Valley include Ancient Valley Open Mic, 2017/2018 in Del Norte, Sunday Folk Music Breakfast at La Garita Trading Post In 2017 and at Boogies in Del Norte in 2018, and A Jam In The Rockies, August 2018. I’ll continue traveling back to my favorite places in Texas, like the Sons of Hermann Hall in Dallas, Pickin’ In the Pines in Pine Mills and The Terlingua Music Bash. Let’s share some music some time!
Jenni loves to share the gentle and beautiful music of the mountain dulcimer. Her first Mountain Dulcimer Brunch of the season was at La Posada Milagro Cafe’ Internet in Terlingua, Texas. She’ll do her best to bring these events to a cafe’ near you this year! You can help by suggesting possible venues in the weeks to come.
