About Little Omena

Maggie & JimmyMaggie Racich & Jimmy Linenberger

We are the youngest snowbirds you'll ever meet!  Half of the year (summer!) we are based in the Leelanau Peninsula, amidst a community of artists and creators who all dwell on the 45th parallel.  As snow falls, we head South down to Tucson, Arizona to soak up the sun rays and reconnect with our winter community of performers. We've performed in venues across the United States from coffeeshops and festivals to home concerts, from the Pacific Northwest to Southern Texas, and much of the in-between.

We are a soulful folk group featuring original music containing evocative lyrics, a distinct sound quality, and a high instrument to performer ratio.  Intimate and witty, our sound and stage presence has been compared to that of Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, and The Weepies.  Little Omena is best enjoyed in an intimate, house concert style setting, when the audience can truly steep in the stories and wordplay of our music.
