Past Performances

I am available to play for both English and Contra dances. Presently, I play with the band Cardinal Direction (previously known as Firefly), with Cedar Stanistreet (of Nor'easter) on fiddle and Jon Cannon on guitar. Right now I am getting back on the scene after finishing my first two years of full-time teaching. I am excited to start playing regularly again! If you are interested in having the band Cardinal Direction at your local event, please email us at cardinaldirectiondance@gmail.com!

Regular dances: I have played for many regular dances all over New England with varying musicians. Check out my past performances page if you are curious!

Festivals: Some of the highlight festivals I have played at include The Dance Flurry with the Great Bear Trio, Labor Day Pinewoods Weekend in which I performed for both English and Contra dances, and Great Bear Groove with Firefly, among others.
