Band: Ginger Ackley
Description: Ginger's music is Celtic – with at Twist!  A Texas native happily transplanted to Ohio, Ginger has taken her life-long passion for music, combined it with a love of history and tradition, and mixed it all  into a delightful style of Celtic Folk. Performing both traditional and original songs, she sings while accompanying herself on one of her six autoharps, or  jams with other folks  on her penny whistles. She has been described as a songwriter “in the old style,"  and her most recent album “The Elf King's Horn" reaches into the magical and new age music!
Personal Fact: Before I really started singing outside of a small set of friends, I traveled on a cruise in 2005 with Danny O'Flaherty and his Celtic group.  They had a song writing contest among the group where the song had to be about leaving one place to go to another.  It had to be upbeat and positive.  The judges of the contest were Danny O'Flaherty, Danny Doyle, Andy M. Stewart and Aoife Clancy.  There in the middle of the Caribbean, I wrote "It Is Time" which won the contest.  I've never stopped playing and writing music since!
Newest CD: The Elf King's Horn
Year Released: 2015
