Sample a few songs from The Irishman’s Daughter

‘The Irishman’s Daughter’ is a CD that’s been in the works for a few years, and I’m so happy that it’s finished and out there in the world!  It was important to me to not try to sound like a traditional artist, but like myself ~ which is a third generation Irish American with a love of the music.  My choices of material for this project are either my own take on trad music or my own compositions entirely, but still with an Irish vibe to them.  And, of course, none of these songs and tunes would be anything without the help of the amazing musicians who played on them!

‘A beautiful mix of traditional and her own written songs.’  Johnny’s Garden, Holland, Europe

And apparently ‘The Irishman’s Daughter’ is (or was in July) the #8 best-selling Irish record in Japan!

    The weather has made a dynamic shift here in Michigan and it feels much more like fall than summer.  In the past few months there have been some fun neighborhood bonfires, a two-week stint of teaching songwriting at Interlochen Arts Academy, various gigs (including my regular Pasty Belt Tour in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula), a week […]
