Singer-songwriter Jennie Reichman performs intimate, incisive songs that draw inspiration from life’s challenges and small triumphs. Her deft, finger-style guitar playing, warm voice and heartfelt lyrics create an atmosphere at once enlivening and calming, inviting listeners to plumb the depths of their own emotions.

She performs both as a solo artist and with fellow musician Jonny Sheehan. Calendar info
