Jennifer Mylod conducted an intimate concert on April 1st at 6pm in the Whitesbog Barrel Factory accompanied by her husband, Phil.
Almost every seat in the house was taken. Mylod, who writes all of her songs, played a mixture of Irish sounds and dulcimer music, including songs such as “Old Kitchen Table” and “Princess of Hay”.
The duo played a variety of instruments, using nearly a different set for every song. A few of the instruments included the Mountain Dulcimer, Acoustic Guitar, Violin, Bodhran, and Native American Flute.
The instruments were very interesting because I had never seen them before, no have I ever heard them be played live. The audience and the Mylods laughed together as an inside joke was passed between them about Jen’s nervousness to play despite everyone’s thrill of watching her fingers pluck away.
“Had a wonderful turn out last night at Whitesbog Villiage in the old barrel making factory part… it was wonderful to see so many friends – and meet so many new folks as well… Lovely venue… even a sweet lady there from Germany! Thanks all – for coming out to the bogs! :)” – Jennifer Mylod and the Boys of County O’Cean post on their Facebook page, April 2nd
The concert was just 5$ at the door. Two of Mylod’s CDs were for sale – At This Moment, and Mylodic Isle for just $15 each.
My Mom and I bought At This Moment and had her autograph it. It was an enjoyable show, with an unforgettable sound. Not even a fool on April Fool’s could have found a dislike in Mylod’s music.
