Jenny O - The Sage Summertyne Americana Festival.

Another lone guitarist singer/songwriter (see Peter Molinari below), facing the problem of starting the show.  This young lady is quite a skilled guitarist and I’d have liked to hear some acoustic guitar solos, rather than some of the songs, which were reflections of love.  The trouble with this style of song is that it lacks the ‘hook’ that make many jazz and pop songs memorable.  The voice was sweet and bubbly, and more spirited when using the electric guitar.  Jenny appeared to be nervous and she perhaps needs to connect with the audience a little more.
