LOWELL, MA — In celebration of International Women's Month and as an event of the extended Lowell Women's Week schedule, Lowell National Historical Park presents Tuscarora singer Jennifer Kreisberg. She comes from a family in which the last four generations on her mother's side consisted of seven singing sisters.

Known for her fierce vocals and lilting harmonies, Jennifer Kreisberg has traveled the world with the outstanding vocal trio Ulali, a Native American women's a cappella group.

A master teaching artist for the Connecticut Commission on the Arts for four years, Kreisberg often serves as guest lecturer at universities, native communities, and festivals through-out the country. She has sung backup for Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Sting, and Richie Havens and has more recently toured as a backup vocalist with Buffy Sainte-Marie.

The Lowell Folklife Series program is free & open to the public at 7:30 pm Friday, March 28, 2014, at the Lowell National Historical Park Visitor Center, 246 Market Street, Lowell, MA.
