Jackie Tice brings folk-rock with Native American spirituality to Thrasher

Heralded with reviews like, “Best new songwriter,” and “A stand-out,” Native American Jackie Tice graces the stage of the historic Thrasher Opera House on Friday night, June 15, at 7:30 p.m. with music that has been described as folk-rock with Native American spirituality.

 Jackie Tice’s recent CD, Second Skin, makes full use of her award-winning performing and songwriting skills. Produced by 2005 Native American Grammy winner, Bill Miller, it includes Jamey Haddad, percussion, (Paul Simon) and Pete Cummings, electric guitar, (Johnny Cash, Willy Nelson).  “She's not in a box,” says Miller. “She writes songs with messages…hers is a voice that needs to be heard.”

A Kerrville New Folk Award-winner, the co-mingling of Tice's Native American and old European roots informs her musical and lyrical styling, carefully combing through subjects from Shakespearian love to the call of coyotes.   "I love your songs," Lucinda Williams said to Jackie backstage at the Kerrville Festival. Christine Lavin declared Jackie’s song, The Marijo Tonight, "a modern-day classic," and included it on one of her compilation CD’s.   Acoustic Guitar says, "Tice's songs capture instances of universal recognition and appeal. Her ode to a Dublin pub, 'The Marijo Tonight,' is a guitar player's 'Piano Man,' and bittersweet as John Prine's 'Angel from Montgomery.’”

Born in a Pennsylvania steel town, an emancipated minor in her teens, Jackie has more than enough songwriting fodder to last a lifetime.  And now, a long list of kudos from major music media in the US, Australia, Italy and Canada.


Her festival and listening club performances and workshops with Lavin, Miller, Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey, John Gorka, Garnet Rogers, Susan Werner, and others, from Club Passim to the Bluebird Café have paved the way for her recognition as an important voice among American songwriters.
