Connie Fisher Sings Sacred Songs of the Ancients
Take a musical tour across the world and through time with Connie Fisher, in concert, singing the sacred and soul-nurturing songs of the Ancients and the Old World on Friday, November 20th, 7:30 PM at the Old Town Center for the Arts in Cottonwood. Become transported to a time long ago and far away through this multi-media presentation featuring Connie’s ethereal diva voice, costumes, slides, artwork and lighting specials.
The concert will feature Celtic (Irish and Scottish) ballads, classical songs of India, songs from around the world and a selection of Connie’s original songs. Connie’s Celtic vocals include love songs, sea songs, bawdy ballads, and traditional ballads. Her voice is ethereal and captivating as she sings in both English and other world languages, telling a bit of poetic history, as she weaves traditional songs with original song-stories.
Connie is also a talented multi-instrumentalist as she accompanies herself with guitar, tambura, and ethnic flutes. She began her musical adventure with studies in classical piano and guitar, and with vocal training as a child in Chicago. “I inherited my inspiration and vocal chords from my mother who sang and played guitar and piano in bands, barbershop, and stage plays. My mother inherited her vocal chords from my grandmother who was a singer with three brothers who were musicians in their Czech Polka Band in Chicago,” recounted Connie.
Connie Fisher's original songs find their roots in her life-long study of sacred world music, dance, and art. Connie's training in the arts of South India, West Africa, Celtic and Eastern Europe fuse together and become her vehicle for spiritual self-expression.
Asked why she sings, Connie replies, “For thousands of years, Aborigine myth states that our world was created by song. Aboriginal creation myth tells of beings who, in a primordial 'dreamtime,' willed the material world into being by singing. This is the reason I sing!”
