We're proud to bring you Jennifer Cutting's Ocean Orchestra in our Holiday Special for Yule and New Year, 2012, SP27. Jennifer celebrates Christian and Pagan Solstice traditions. You can hear her rousing and evocative folk song, Song of Solstice, from the album of the same name on this show. You can also hear a totally different folk style for the Ocean Orchestra with the track Summer Will Come Round Again in our Spring Holiday Show for 2012, SP28.
Jennnifer Cutting's Ocean (or just Ocean now), a Celtic Quartet (Jennifer Cutting on accordions & keyboard; Lisa Moscatiello on vocals, whistles & guitar; Andrew Dodds on fiddle, and Steve Winick on vocals and percussion) play music packed with pure pan-Celtic pizzazz, putting their unique spin on traditional songs and Cutting’s original compositions, from soaring ballads and stirring sea chanteys to blazing fiddle and accordion tunes. As much at home in the concert hall as on the festival stage, Ocean has played to sold-out and enthusiastic crowds at Maryland venues such as the Strathmore Mansion, Annapolis Maritime Museum, Globe Theater in Berlin, and outdoor Festivals and Concert Series such as Southern Maryland Celtic Festival and Riverside Concerts at Washington College in Chestertown. They have also performed at Musikfest in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, the Folk Project’s Minstrel Concert Series in New Jersey, the Birchmere in Virginia, Mystic Seaport’s Sea Music Festival in Connecticut, and elsewhere in the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast.
Ocean has 2 albums and 1 single available.
