From the age of thirteen, Jeanie Fitchen has enchanted concert and festival audiences from the Alaskan Arctic to the Carribbean Tropics, bringing to them her singular musical art intertwining original stories and stellar vocals in a rich musical synthesis.
Born and raised in Orlando, Florida, Jeanie grew up with the music of great masters such as Verdi, Puccini and Mozart. Her mother had hoped that she might train for the opera but Jeanie found her musical niche in the simple beauty and artistic style of folk music, viewing it as a vehicle for personal and social expression.
At age 15, Jeanie made her festival debut with appearances at the Florida Folk Festival in White Springs and the Fox Hollow Folk Festival in Petersburg, New York. She continues to be a major performer and MC at numerous festivals and acoustic venues around the country.
Jeanie's concert performances take the listener through the entire gamut of emotions as she spins yarns and tugs at the heartstrings, incorporating traditional as well as contemporary topical elements in her programs. She is a highly-acclaimed songwriter with the ability to evoke through melancholy and euphoria the wondrous resilience and vitality of life.
