Celebrate the Holidays with SimpleGifts
As long-time fans will tell you, SimpleGifts makes musical magic by bringing a modern flair to traditional Christmas carols and hymns. Staying close to the heart of Christmas by avoiding commercial and pop holiday repertoire has become the trademark of this award winning six-piece ensemble. The 2012 10th Anniversary holiday concert season features a special guest, renown for Celtic Whistle, Flute, Concertina and Bagpipe playing, Laura MacKenzie. Laura will be performing at all SimpleGifts 2012 concerts except December 7th when SimpelGifts welcomes back, for this show only, founding member Jeni-Lyn Starr, from maternity leave. This season’s concert will include new music never recorded before as well as music previously released from all four SimpleGifts CDs.
SimpleGifts combines violin, Celtic whistle and bagpipes, piano, acoustic guitar and percussion with angelic three part female vocals to create a "modern Old-World" sound. There is nothing ordinary about the arrangements this team delivers both in the studio and in concert. Seen by over 20,000 live audience members last season, this group continues to grow in popularity throughout the Upper Midwest and has successfully transitioned from their early days in coffeehouses and small listening rooms to prestigious performing art centers and larger churches.
Celebrating it’s 10th holiday concert season, SimpleGifts is made up of internationally recognized award-winning instrumentalists and vocalists with impressive resumes available on our Press Page.
