Price: $13-$15
Scotland´s Western Isles have preserved a wealth of traditional Scots Gaelic songs, as well as music for the pipes. This new duo combines these two ancient musical traditions, with forays into related music. Vocalist Jennifer Licko, who also plays guitar, keyboards, bodhran and dances, has been studying and performing Scots Gaelic song for the past 15 years. She is joined by Dick Hensold on pipes and whistle. Please note that Highland pipes are NOT used for this program–NONE of the instruments used are very loud.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota state arts board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

With Jennifer Licko´s Scots Gaelic Song workshop, no previous Scots Gaelic language knowledge is needed. The study focus is on the music and the purpose of the song. Although, one should expect a few language explanations as needed for the singing. The workshop provides students with the experience of learning the musical purpose of each song. Before a dance tune is learned, the dance step is demonstrated to visually see how the tune rhythm matches with the dance step. As a work song is learned, work song motions are made while singing in order to feel the emphasis on the beat and understand the rise and fall of the song. Jennifer began competitive Scottish Dance at the age of 9 and competed as a premier Highland Dancer until age 22. She also has a degree in Music Education and has been teaching Celtic cultural arts through music and dance in school settings since 2003.
