When’s the last time you had a live in-studio guest play mountain dulcimer in a way that didn’t conjure up images of your Appalachian grandmother or made you wish that Joni Mitchell had never penned “A Case of You”? Yeah, I thought so…
But seriously, I’m a singer-songwriter born in Tennessee, based in North Carolina and coming to NYC to play Rockwood Music Hall on August 5, 2019. While I know how to play this quirky mountain folk instrument in the traditional way, life has led me to pen my own original songs which trend indie pop to a style my Swedish friend calls “space dulcimer music”. Additionally, I cover 90s pop songs (thanks big brother for listening to way too many Cranberries songs when I was a kid), Cyndi Lauper’s greatest dulcimer hits (did you know she plays dulcimer?!?), and I have three graduate degrees (one of those in medicine) which have absolutely nothing to do with my music.
If you’d like to have a guest on your show that plays a quirky folk instrument in an innovative way and makes poor attempts at stand up comedy with her half-witted songs, I’m your gal.
