One day, we’ll all have to “get a real job,” find a new place to live and pay off the ridiculous student loans we’ve accumulated over the past few years (not necessarily in that order).
Until such time, there are certain benefits to the high cost of higher education. One of those perks is Live at Lunch, where students can enjoy the musical styles of artists from across the country for the cost of a cheesesteak.
Last week brought Jeneen Terrana from New York to North Dakota for the first time ever.
Terrana specializes in guitar-heavy folk-rock and Americana tunes, not to mention a passion for baking that has helped support her multiple passions. She was even featured on the Food Network’s “Home Made in America” and passed out recipes during her appearance.
Bob Doda of the Queens Courier (located in the musician’s current port of call) refers to her music as “a whirlwind of powerful songs and folksy playfulness.”
After hearing the music for myself, I can’t disagree.
She’s not entirely alone in her production, either. Her husband, Craig Mackay, recently started joining her for particular songs. He even signed his first-ever autograph during the performance, meaning at least one warm thing happened to the pair before predictable Fargo weather blew them out of town.
Terrana and her team left Dakota territory last week, but there are still ways to catch her folksy crooning if you missed the live performance.
The artist has produced three albums, including My Creation, Just Me and See the Light. Each is available on Amazon, iTunes and CDBaby. If you’d like something more recent, however, there will also be a four-song EP available soon.
