Since 1990, Ancient Spirit has had the great privilege of performing their music in several Oklahoma City country clubs, which include, Gaillardia, Oak Tree, The Greens and Quail Creek.
 
They have also performed at many music festivals, including, the Tom Mix Festival in Guthrie, OK; Wintertales, Festival of the Arts and Opening Night in Oklahoma City; the German-American Oktoberfest Concert in Shawnee, OK; the Crystal Bridge at Oklahoma City's Botanical Gardens; the National Accordion Association Convention in Texas; and the Accordionist and Teachers Guild festival in Branson, MO.
 
The restaurant venues include the Strater Hotel in Durango, CO; the Cellar Cafe, Ingrid's Kitchen and Keller in the Kastle in Oklahoma City; and from 1996 to 2006, Royal Bavaria Brewery and Restaurant in Moore, Oklahoma.

New ventures are on the horizon for Ancient Spirit as they prepare to expand their performances to include many traditional Irish tunes that will showcase Martha on Irish Tenor Banjo and Jackie on Accordion. The transition, from 10 years of German music to the detailed and technically challenging passages of Irish reels, jigs and hornpipes, has proven to be rewarding and very enlightening.
