Quinn debuts CD on Christmas concert tour Singer, songwriter, and recording artist Jackie Quinn will debut her highly anticipated CD Raging Wildflower on her Christmas concert tour starting Nov. 30.
Quinn will offer her original nine-song montage at her six South Dakota and Iowa shows. The scheduled one-hour concerts are:
Sunday, Nov. 30, 10 a.m. � St. John's Lutheran Church, Dimock
Monday, Dec. 8, 7:30 p.m. � MMC Marian Auditorium, Yankton
Friday, Dec. 12, 7:30 p.m. � Sacred Heart Church, Yankton
Saturday, Dec. 13, 7:30 p.m. � United Methodist Church, Wagner
Sunday, Dec. 14, 7 p.m. � United Methodist Church, Highmore
Tuesday, Dec. 16, 7 p.m. � St. Brendan's Church, Leon, IA
Originally from Highmore and formerly a Yankton resident, Quinn now pursues her music ministry work from her home in Lamoni, IA. Through her non-denominational program, Quinn has encouraged thousands across the nation by sharing her music and message at churches, youth events, festivals, professional retreats, and correctional facilities.
She has had the privileged opportunity to open for and share the stage with known Christian acts such as GoFish and Pam Thum.
"It's fun to travel regionally throughout the year, but I'm extremely excited to work in my new home area and also get back to 'Dakota' to not only celebrate Christmas with friends and family, but share this project with all those that stood behind me," she said.
Recorded in Nashville at Emerald Studios and reminiscent of a Jennifer Knapp/Sheryl Crow sound, Raging Wildflower is a compilation of tunes that Quinn has written and uses in her ministry program.
A Yankton area favorite on the CD might prove to be Blacktop Beat, a song written on a morning meditation run around the "Mount Marty Mile," pointing out specific landmarks including Paul's Kwik Stop, Laddie E. Cimpl Arena, and the Sacred Heart Monastery cemetery.
Quinn's CD can be purchased for $13 at the live area concerts, at both Sacred Heart School sites in Yankton, at www.jackiequinn.com, or by calling 641-784-7188.
