    Jennie Avila sings original songs with an energizing presence. She accompanies herself with acoustic guitar, conga drum, and kokirikko (an instrument that resembles a snake vertebrae) and exotic hand percussion. A trafficker in goosebumps, Jennie brings an incredible magnetism to the stage. Her earthly voice swings agilely from muddy earth growls to mystic ethereal whispers with heart touching lyrics that stir the soul.  What people are saying about the SONGS of Jennie’s new CD Love & Lore of the Civil War – “Poignant and powerful!”  ~ Curtis in Utah, Civil War Buff, “Very original! Your songs capture the events as if you were able to see 150 years ago.” ~ Russell E. Richards, Jr. Historical Entertainment, LLC.  In the summer of 2004, Jennie joined the Maryland based folk trio, HOT SOUP. Along with Christina Muir and Sue Trainor, Hot Soup serves up a delicious mix of melodies and harmonies. Jennie will be joined by Stephen Wright. (www.wrighthanddrums.com) (www.jennieavila.com)   

The trio Hot Soup simmers with intelligent lyrics, zany humor, spirited musicality and scrumptious three-part harmony. The recipe for this delectable concoction are the blended solo talents of Sue Trainor, Christina Muir and Jennie Avila. Their recordings continue to place this nationally touring trio among the most-played artists on international acoustic radio. Washingtonian magazine said "Insiders expect the . . .  trio Hot Soup to go far!" Hot Soup's live shows "sparkle," said Sing Out! magazine. The trio brings a rare blend of spontaneity and intimacy to their performances, often developing hilarious exchanges among themselves and with the audience. The trio's musical diversity extends to their instrumentation, including a variety of guitar styling’s, harp, conga, ubang (a variety of udu), and small percussion such as kokkirico and window shutter. The focus, however, is always the sweet voices, trading lead vocals and capturing harmonies that raise goose bumps. No surprise, really. All three are talented solo performers with recordings of their own in addition to Hot Soup, Soup Happens, and their latest release The Way You Like It. “Brimming with energy, intelligence and sweet harmonies, Hot Soup serves up a piping hot stew of original and collected . . .  tunes like no one else in the business. As they focus on a lively give and take of lead vocals and group harmonizing, the trio keeps its music fresh and displays its talents with varied instrumentation . . . The end result is a dazzling, intimate live performance that has earned praise from audiences across New England.” ~ The Boston Folk Festival. (www.hotsouptrio.com)
