Artist Bio

Influences:   American old-timey, bluegrass, Celtic, jazz........ and artists like: Liz Frencham, Nickel Creek, Brittany Haas, Hanneke Cassel, The Wailin' Jennys, Trouble in the Kitchen, Lau, Sarah Jarosz, Abigail Washburn, Clare Bowditch, Crooked Still, Joni Mitchell, My Friend the Chocolate Cake, The East Pointers, I'm With Her, Tatiana Hargreaves, Hilarie Burhans, Cathy Fink...

I'm a fiddle player (who sometimes also plays the violin!) and I love to sing. I've written more instrumentals than songs with lyrics so far but would like that to change!

This will be my FOURTH FAWM but I am not feeling very hopeful that I'll get much done this year. I'm currently pregnant with my second baby, due late March, and I just feel tired all the time! Maybe there'll be a lot of songs about being tired?!

I am still loving playing the banjo (clawhammer style) and have bought a beautiful new banjo. Really hope I can muster the energy to create some songs this year!

Would still love to collaborate but am pretty time poor so will have to play it by ear.

    Hiya, I wrote a song last night that I might ask you to put some violin on if you’re game. Not sure how it’s going to turn out but I want it to sound a bit like ‘Blame it on the Tetons” by Modest Mouse. Have a listen for reference if you fancy it.
    Happy Friday; or whatever day it is over there 😉

    What lovely news! Seconds often are quick... though mine was (after being 8 days late) and left me a little in shock to be fair!

    Hiya! Yes, me too. 1 down already and I wrote a sill one this morning that I’ll try and get down later.
    As always, if anything jumps out at you that you’d like to fiddle over, let me know.
    All the best
