About the event
Jenna & Rolf first met in NYC at the very end of 1995 in a rehearsal for a 17 piece rock orchestra that was focused on the music of the Grateful Dead. The band toured the United States and Canada, recording and/or touring with folks like Jorma Kaukonen (Jefferson Airplane), Catherine Russell, Tom Constanten (Grateful Dead), Ike Willis (Frank Zappa), and Maggie Roche. Jenna was in the band for 3 years. Rolf was in the band for over 10 years. Together they appeared on 3 of the band’s recordings. During this time period, Jenna & Rolf talked about putting a duo together…. “someday.”
Fast forward to January of 2014, they decided that “someday” had finally arrived. Jenna returned to New York in June, they played their first gig together in about 18 years, and went into the recording studio the next day. The recording they made, entitled “Spark”, was released in 2015. It received nationwide radio play and glowing reviews. Their second CD, “Begin To Dance,” was released in 2017. It also received national radio play and marvelous reviews.
The two have been touring almost every month since reconnecting, performing at festivals, conferences, clubs, cafes, and house concerts
