Danish sensation, Jessica Lynne

Evening entertainment and more:
2018 evening entertainment: Danish sensation, Jessica Lynne! Optional Danish classes have also been added to the program.

Jessica Lynne: Sometimes authentic country music artists do not grow up in what we would consider hotbeds of country music. Sometimes they grow up in Haslev, Denmark, the native town of current Seattle resident, Jessica Lynne, a sensational and rising country star and one of London Tone Music’s most successful artists.

Danish classes by Aaase Beaulieu. Optional classes for those who would like to learn some Danish at the retreat!
