In 2007 Lines and Spaces gave made a history-making appearance at the Eden Song folk music festival where they were the only group to get a standing ovation in the nearly 3 decades the festival has existed.  Since then Jennifer has performed with Crosby Still Nash and Young at the Sundance Film Festival, onstage at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival, and done a great deal of work in the recording studio both for local artists and for independent film scores.
