Celtic Trill- Flute and Harp Duo
The two musical women of Celtic Trill, Doanne Brown and Nancy Jacobson, have been performing together on the Celtic Harp and Flute since 2003. Nancy and Doanne have both spent many years steeped in music, performing, teaching and even directing in settings as diverse as church choirs, local choruses, and handbell choirs. They met through their church and soon branched out to share their musical talent with the community by playing mainly for retirement and assisted living facilities and senior centers. They also play concerts, and provide special music for weddings, birthday and anniversary celebrations and other events. Celtic Trill provides a relaxing atmosphere of Celtic, light Classical, Sacred, Broadway, Contemporary, American, *Holiday music, and other worldwide favorites. Their music sets the toes tapping, brings a tear to the eye, puts a smile on the lips and a song in the heart! Contact them to arrange a performance for you!

*Holidays such as Christmas, Valentine’s Day, all Scottish music for Robert Burns’ birthday, all Irish for St.Patrick’s Day, Mothers Day,and Patriotic and American favorites for July 4th events. Also, Jewish music.

“I would highly recommend the harmonic sensation of Celtic Trill-Flute and Harp Duo. Both Nancy and Doanne’s performance was astonishing and really set the mood for our Mother’s Day event. A very versatile duo, that could adapt and adjust themselves as well as perform soothing music for our memory care residents. Thanks again you two.“ Corbin B., Activity Director, Farmington Square, Beaverton
“Our senior residents and our staff were blessed to hear Celtic Trill. Doanne and Nancy performed gentle classical music that, after an eventful morning, gave all a sense of calm and warmth. Their performance was of the highest quality; their personal conduct with our residents, thoughtful and compassionate. As they offer a wide selection of pieces, we would happily welcome them into our senior community again in the future. “ Colleen W., Activity Director, Whitewood Gardens Residential Care, Portland
“The Stevens-Crawford Heritage House each year holds a Christmas Open House. This event has become a tradition among locals as well as visitors from afar! The guests have come to enjoy the festively decorated house and entertainment, most notably, Nancy Jacobson and Doanne Brown. They have become a part of our Christmas tradition and are the most anticipated and beloved entertainers at our event.” Diane M., Christmas Event Coordinator, Stevens-Crawford Heritage House, Oregon City
“Celtic Trill – Nancy and Doanne are fantastic, talented musicians who love to thrill our senior folks with their timeless renditions of classic songs. Celtic Trill provides beautiful background music for the lunch crowd but often the people start to sing along! We continue to have them return to our center for special occasions as the seniors always ask us “When will they be back?”. “ Peggi F., Friends of the Sherwood Senior Center Board Chairman
