Ways to support our work
Highland Echoes is a nonprofit accepting tax-deductible donations. We depend on this support to share our educational Scottish cultural programs to students both in the classroom and at home.
We believe that students deserve the opportunity to benefit from cultural heritage to build self-confidence, increasing awareness of diversity, and to connect to Scottish heritage. It’s our dream that every child has the opportunity to engage in culturally responsive educational and artistic experiences.
By providing Scottish Cultural Arts performances, we believe that the arts move people to take action and become a part of something greater than themselves. We are connecting people to their heritage through the medium of arts, and nothing is more powerful than inspirational entertainment through the arts.
School Program Testimonials
"Jennifer performed for two groups at our elementary school (Grades K-2 and 3-5). Everyone was pleased and excited about her program - the students, teachers, administration, PTA and parents. The feedback that I received was about students going home and dancing for their parents and speaking a bit of Gaelic. One the teachers told me that it was the best Cultural Arts program that they had ever seen."

Huntersville Elementary School
"This Morning Jennifer Licko performed for our k-2 grade students and our 3-5 grade students. Both performances were age appropriate and engaging. Jennifer provided information in a manner that each group could easily comprehend. Her musical selections were of excellent quality. Not only did Jennifer know how to relate to our students, but she was also able to easily regain their attention following more participatory segments of her program. She arrived well in advance of the performances and was very well organized. I would strongly recommend her to other schools seeking to inform their students about North Carolina's Scottish heritage."
