Episode #104 “Scottish History with Special Guest Jennifer Licko”
On today’s episode of Mountain Song and Story, I’ll be talking with my guest Jennifer Licko. Jennifer is a former Scottish Highland dancer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist who plays the piano, guitar, and bodhrán (Irish drum), and an educator. After living almost a decade in Scotland and Ireland, Jennifer realized the strong similarities between Scotland and North Carolina and her music began to branch out into a genre which honors those connections. Today I’ll be speaking with her to talk about the music and dance connections and more between Appalachia and Scotland.
