Jennifer Concannon

BandFolkAcoustic

Modern day contemporary folk; influenced by the greats (Joni, Dylan, Baez, Young) yet inspired by modern times. Traditional but original if that is possible.

Biography

"Edinburgh based Irish singer-songwriter Jennifer Concannon discovered a love of live performance at an early age playing Led Zepplin songs in a Derry covers band aged sixteen. In search of a wider audience and to find herself musically, Jennifer moved to Edinburgh via San Francisco. She now plays her own material in some of the city's best acoustic cafes and venues."

Jennifer is recognised to be one of the most promising acts on the Edinburgh scene right now. She has achieved national radio play, major festival appearances, shows across the UK and major record label interest without having officially released a single piece of music. Instead she has built a loyal following across the UK and Ireland through the distribution of a free EP and many, many live appearances.

She has already booked flights to the US around the time of SxSW to perform a short tour of Texas and California - organised by acts she has met through the 'net. an appearance at the official SxSW event would be the icing n the cake!

Discography

So far Jenny has preferred to distribute her music through a free EP, obtainable at all her live shows and through her myspace page. She works closely with Edinburgh label Slow Train Records who plan to release her debut single in Spring 2009.

Set List

Jennifer plays sets of her own material and can perform for anything up to an hour.
