"Connie Dover has become an American treasure who has rediscovered the musical synergy that existed between the British Isles and the American West." (Cowboys & Indians Magazine). "Just occasionally, a voice arrives on the folk scene that is so pure, so beautiful, so magical, that it tells you: this is how to sing a song. Such a voice has Connie Dover." (The Scotsman) "Heavenly songs bridge the Celtic tradition and the American West. Connie Dover's shimmering soprano is as pure and clear as the Western sky." Kansas City Magazine

Acclaimed by the Boston Globe as "the finest folk ballad singer America has produced since Joan Baez," Connie Dover is a singer, poet and Emmy Award-winning producer and composer. Her soaring, crystal-clear voice and inspired arrangements of traditional music of Scotland, Ireland and the American West display a depth and breadth of range that have earned her a rightful place among the world's finest traditional singers. Connie, who began her Celtic music career as a lead singer for the Kansas City-based Irish band Scartaglen, has collaborated with musical friends on both sides of the Atlantic, performing on radio, television, and in concert throughout North and South America. Her broadcast performances include guest appearances on NPR's Weekend Edition, A Prairie Home Companion, Thistle and Shamrock, Mountain Stage and E-Town.

For this concert, Connie will be joined by the outstanding fiddler Douglas Goodhart and guitarist Kelly Werts.
