I’m a 63 year old American woman who has played folk music in one form or another all my life. I started with folk songs back in the 60’s, but my interest developed to include American old-time, bluegrass, Swedish traditional and contemporary dance tunes and songs, and last but far from least, Irish/Celtic.

I moved to Sweden in 2001 to marry the love of my life. I work full-time and my husband and I travel quite a bit on both sides of the big pond (we also have a summer house in the states). Music is still a big part of my life.

I belong to a Swedish traditional folk music orchestra and a 3-piece band that plays Celtic music (mostly Irish but also Scottish, English and Welsh) for the occasional gigs we manage to get. I also sing and play for smaller venues as a one-man show - often singing in (yikes) Swedish!

I play penny whistle (a nickel-plated D Copeland), hammered dulcimer, guitar, and flute.
