I am from Vandergrift, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Pittsburgh. I play Flute, Tin Whistle, and am learning to play guitar. I also have a set of Uileann Pipes that intimidate me, but I do hope to learn to play in the near future. I play in an Irish band called Barbary Wine and also perform Irish songs in an acoustic duo with my fiancé, Patrick as "Doc & Tina." I’m looking forward to learning session tunes to be able to participate in some of the local Sessions and also to incorporate the music into our performances.
