"I started singing as a small child and I'm not sure I've ever stopped.
It's a great source of
joy for me and the thing in life I believe I do well, though this took some work (the believing part).
My family sang, we didn't perform. It was an around the house or in the car kind of thing: passing
time, washing dishes.
I started singing in church when I was 12 or 13, I guess. At 18 I met
some people that had a family bluegrass band and have sung with them off and on since. Otherwise it
was in the living room or atchurch. That was the bulk of my singing experience until the summer of 1999
when I started singing with a bluegrass band in Chicago, Whiskey Hollow. Many friends have been made
and many opportunities, including teaching at the Old Town School of Folk Music".
