This workshop for all ages and talent levels explores ways to get the most out of the voice you have. Using and learning some traditional songs, we’ll lean into style, rhythm, vocal range and pitch, and incorporate some harmonies for those interested. No singing expertise required – just a love of singing and an open heart—but be prepared to sing a lot!

And with musical partner Vollie McKenzie, she sings country and honky tonk in various configurations. Among her four albums is one recorded with WV musicians Ginny Hawker and Tracy Schwarz.
