About Me

I am a singer/songwriter from Glasgow, Kentucky. I have two Celtic folk harps custom built by my father, and also play acoustic guitar and Irish Whistle.

I have been playing harp for over ten years and am a recipient of the Jan Pennington Gray harp medallion, as well as the National Storytelling Network’s scholarship for Next Generation storytellers.

I have two years of experience teaching and telling stories to children of all ages. I play a wide variety of music from cultures around the world, primarily Scottish, Irish, and Nordic.

I have one album available for sale on Bandcamp, with a second one in the works. You can see videos of live performances on my Youtube account, and listen to some demos of original songs on Soundcloud.

I have experience performing for a variety of events and festivals including, but not limited to:

  • Scottish Highland Games

Price varies based on the type of event and services needed, as well as travel distance. Discounts are available for non-profits and charity organizations.

Contact me with the details of your event and I can give you a direct quote.

School Programs

I have two years experience teaching and telling stories to children of all ages. Here is a list of some of the programs available for pre-school through middle school. Each program is tailored to the age group for which I am presenting at the time. If you have a special request for your group let me know, and I can put together a custom presentation for you. Price varies based on travel distance, so contact me for a quote for your specific needs.

School programs usually run 30-45 minutes with time set aside for questions at the end.

Introduction to Scottish Harp—this program includes a brief explanation of the harp, including a myth about its invention, followed by a few Scottish ballads. In groups of 15 or fewer children will be allowed to come up and try playing themselves.

Introduction to Irish Music—Similar to the previous program, except with Irish music and the addition of the Irish Whistle and a Bodhran.

The Legend of King Arthur—stories and songs from the Arthurian Legends.

Norse Mythology—The Marvel films featuring the Norse God Thor has brought a resurgence of interest in Nordic Mythology. This presentation includes several original songs about the Norse gods, peppered with amusing tales of Thor and Loki’s antics in Asgard.

Pirates! – This presentation includes full pirate costume, pirate stickers, pirate lingo, and pirate ballads! Instruments played include the Celtic harp, guitar, whistle, and bodhran.
