Jess Holland, with special guest Nick Hoover, will be performing for the third concert in the Door Community Auditorium’s 2011 Fireside Coffeehouse Concert Series. On Feb. 12 at 7 pm Holland will grace the stage and light up the fireside lobby with her charm, her beauty, and her music.
Holland hails from Libertyville, Illinois, where her family was involved in music and naturally raised her to do the same. While in Chicago for her college education, she pursued a career in social work. She played several solo and collaborative gigs and one summer combined her two passions and joined The Medicinal Strings, a group that tours nursing homes, homeless shelters, and other spaces often devoid of live performances.
The next summer, Holland headed for Door County where she wrote music and performed. After spending time in Austin, Texas, she has returned to Door County and is actively singing and songwriting.
Holland will play a thoughtful blend of original songs as well as a wide range of compositions by her favorite songwriters. The combination of her soulful voice and expressive acoustic guitar playing allow for a musicality unlike any other.
