Laura MacKenzie Solo

When Laura takes the stage for a solo performance, she brings a fascinating array of wind-powered instruments, including her lovely voice, to the fore. Moving from one instrument to another, Laura contributes diverse and rich sonorities while communicating a vast repertoire of traditional music. Her performance is supported by the grace, warmth and humor, the craft, knowledge and lore gleaned over a lifetime of music-making and study.
"Experienced U.S. multi-instrumentalist steps out....Wielding an array of whistles, pipes, and concertina, she balances prodigious abilities with a maturity and overall expertise."
- fROOTS (U.K.)

"A performing artist of astonishing ability, playing and singing with skill and emotion a splendid repertoire."
- American Association of University Women

"Laura's music draws from a deep well, and her broad experience allows her to bring that depth out into diverse and accessible contexts."
--Tim Britton, Pied Piper Productions
