studio musician

I love to play banjo and sing on records! Some recent projects include Grammy Award-winning “Home” by Tim Kubart, and “The Closest Thing to Home” by Ira Wolf.


In the classroom

I’ve taught banjo and ukulele to all ages, in private lessons and in group classes at some of my favorite places, including Jalopy School of Music and Miles of Music Camp.



You can hear my music in Jenny Slate’s “Stage Fright,” streaming on Netflix in October, 2019.

I’m lucky to play in two bands with some of my best friends.

The Calamity Janes is a (mostly) all-lady stringband. We’ve played play all sorts of gigs and square dances since we started the band in 2010. Check out or 2015 “Hold Right On.”

Rosie Newton and I have been playing music as The Pearly Snaps since we met in 2004! We’re a traditional old-time duo with a whole lotta heart.
