The Colorado Celtic Fingerstyle Guitar player”s tune was one of 25 songs picked from thousands submitted from around the world by a panel of well-known music industry professionals such as Peter Gabriel, Wynonna, Cindi Lauper, David Grisman, and Patti Loveless. Among the list of the 25 winners sharing Jerry”s prestigious award include such world class songwriters as Kris Kristoferson, John Gorka, Sam Bush, and Gregg Brown. Jerry said that he was “pleased and proud” of his award and “honored to be in such company.” Songs from his Jerry”s first CD, KEEPSAKE have been played on National Public Radio and were included in a PBS documentary Song of Our Children. He recently completed an engagement as the featured musician for Imagination Makers Theater Company, performing at two elementary schools a day, Monday through Friday, for a period of three months, presenting a children”s play about an Irish family coming to America. Jerry also performs solo for children in the Denver Schools and described these appearances in his monthly newsletter, “I present a great deal of historical as well as musical information and often spend as much time answering questions as playing music. I”m glad to see schools presenting a variety of music and culture to children who otherwise would have very limited exposure.” Jerry”s internationally recognized arrangements of Irish, Scottish and Appalachian music on fingerstyle guitar have been described as “heart warming” and “uplifting”. In concert, the warm and accessible performer brings traditional Celtic tunes alive by sharing the history, humor and legends behind the music. Keepsake and Bring Down the Storm are now available at the Denver Folklore Center, Twist & Shout, or at any of Jerry”s performances.
