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.

What they are saying...

"The performance by SimpleGifts with Billy McLaughlin at Shattuck-St. Mary's School was simply sublime! The angelic vocals and wonderful musical accompaniment are a breathtaking combination. Experiencing this concert makes one pause and reflect on what the season is all about. This is the real music of Christmas."
Richard Kettering, Acoustic Roots Music Series
Shattuck-St. Mary's School, Faribault, MN


"There was no "Frosty the Snowman", or "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" in the performance of SimpleGifts. Rather, Billy and his incredible group covered the arc of the Christmas narrative in a beautiful and profound way that touched the audience very deeply.
Brian Jose, Executive Director
College of St. Benedict Fine Arts Series St. Joseph, MN
