Concerts for Seniors

Anna Colliton Photography

I love bringing my folk, country & Irish song repertoire to audiences at senior centers, assisted living communities, nursing homes and adult day programs all over eastern and central Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and southern New Hampshire!

I can offer a variety of different programs suitable to the audience, setting, and the time of year. During the month of March I often present concerts of traditional Irish ballads, pub songs and classic Irish-American sing-alongs. In December, I love leading audiences in singing carols and popular 20th-century Christmas songs. Year-round, I play a variety of fun and familiar classic country, folk, and pop songs. I can also provide a therapeutic background music performance focused on relaxing, mellow instrumental selections.

My husband Jordan (mandolin) and I also play as a duo, performing a mix of bluegrass fiddle tunes, Irish jigs & reels, and country songs. He’s available on a more limited basis, but let me know if it’s something you’re interested in!

I provide my own small sound system, as well as invoices & W9s.

If you want to publicize my performance at your community, here’s a flyer template (click to download)!
