Hello and welcome to my website where you can find info on my current musical happenings, and how you may join and be part of them yourself!
After having spent 2008-2014 living in Stockholm, Sweden and traveling extensively throughout Europe playing Old-time music, I’m happy to report that coming back to the US has been wonderfully productive! These days I split my musical time teaching and performing primarily between Morgantown WV, Pittsburgh PA, and Washington DC.
Last fall I was asked to join The Early Mays, a trio from Pittsburgh performing both traditional and original songs in beautiful three part harmony. Singing with these amazing women makes my heart soar and I’m deeply enjoying the music we are creating together! The Mays won first place in the Neo-Traditional contest at Clifftop this summer, and we plan to enter the studio before year’s end to record a new full length album! Please stay updated with more info here: www.theearlymays.com.
I’m also very excited to occasionally be joining the lovely duo of Brad and Ken Kolodner from Baltimore, and am performing several solo concerts throughout the year! On the teaching front I’m offering private and group fiddle lessons through WVU’s community music program, and lessons are also available through Skype anywhere in the world!
In my spare time I contra dance and have recently taken up rock climbing and cajun accordion!
Please take a look around my website, catch a show, and let me know if you would like to bring my kind of music to a stage, dance hall, or workshop classroom near you!
All the best,
