Join Folk Singer and Songwriter Jenni Mansfield Peal at Poor David’s Pub in Dallas for an evening of spooky balladry and humor Saturday, October 30. Jenni is a winner PDP’s annual BW Stevenson Songwriting Contest, and will be bringing her new and favorite originals to this one-woman show. This show will be recorded for use on Jenni’s upcoming album, Receiver, due for release in 2022. Attendees are encouraged to dress as their favorite dead character from a song. Tickets are $20 at the door and in advance at www.poordavidspub.com.
Jenni sings and plays Bodhran for the band’s take on this old Scottish song; Rupert adds a second Bodhran. Linda, brilliant as always, adds the fiddle back up and ending tune. Recorded in 1992 for our album Ascension (no longer available.)
Here is the most recent recording of my song Evalina. Linda Relph joined me at Audio Dallas Recording Studio, working with Paul Osborne, producer. I added accordion to this guitar ballad. It’s fun to hang around studios; I got to meet Robert Lee Kolb. Thanks for stopping by to listen!
