SHANORE BIRTHSTONE RING CLEARANCE SALE

Local Talent Bringing Irish Music to the World

        I first saw and heard this lovely lady performing with Scartaglen in the old HollyConnie_Doverwood Theatre in Leavenworth, Kansas. Until that night I had never heard of Connie Dover but after hearing her sing, I would never forget her. The performance was part of a fund raiser for the Leavenworth St. Patrick's Day Parade. The sounds that night made my Irish roots take a firm hold of my heart. Connie was born in Arkansas and raised in Kansas City, MO. She began her career with Scartaglen and progressed from there. She has made several TV appearances and produced several albums/Cd's, Including: Somebody; The Wishing Well; If Ever I Return and The Border of Heaven. She has won 1 Emmy for acoustic music for the KCPT production of Bad Blood: The Border War That Triggered the Civil War. Connie has won many other awards and has had many wonderful reviews like this one - "Connie Dover is the finest folk ballad singer America has produced since Joan Baez . . . Her soprano is shimmeringly pure, her phrasing pristine, her evocations of ancient Anglo-Scottish, Irish and American cowboy ballads melodically exquisite and utterly believable." - Boston Globe. Connie can be heard locally at various venues but I look forward to her Sunday afternoon performance annually at the Weston WIF08-ConnieDover03Irishfest. Her amazing voice can take you through a range of emotions from sadness to joy. What a gift. Listen to a sample of her work on YouTube  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRBzZZk20NE
