About the Presenter
Ms. Thompson has opened for The Kingston Trio, sung in the back-up chorus for the rock group Foreigner, toured for 10 years with the New England-based “Julie & Brownie”, and has appeared on CMN and TNN in TJ Booker’s music video Wine into Water. Besides publishing songs, she is an internationally published author (Charlesbridge Publishing) and narrator of several children’s books.
Having studied voice in high school and college in the her native state of Maine, Julie's classical training is her foundation for her folk and jazz work. Ten years on the road with Brownie Macintosh (founding the touring act "Julie & Brownie") brought her to nearly every library, recreation department, school, festival and fair in New England and parts of the East Coast, as well as a close call to be signed with Sony Kids. Currently residing and performing in the midwest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (on Lake Michigan, just 1 1/2 hours north of Chicago), she enjoys some regularly scheduled performances there, as well as frequent sojurns to New England and Florida for special events.
