@ The State Room in SLC

Purdymouth, W.V. is reuniting after an 8-year hiatus to celebrate 20 years of Americana-flavored music. I was a part of this band for several years. That's actually me on the end in the pic! I look different now, less pink hair, better wardrobe, more skills AND I rock just as hard. Come have some fun with us! 


Presenting my first Hawaiian Celtic Pirate gig! I know, it's surprising I haven't played many of these before but there is a first time for everything, as they say.


For those of you on the Big Island, please come to this pirate romp as I join The Kiltlifters in their annual Pirate takeover! Now, what to wear...

‘Tis the season for Pirates! Join us at Gertrude's Friday, September 27th for some pirate spirited fun! Pirate music by The Kilt Lifters, Dance by Hawaii Irish Dance and plenty of FUN!

Come to the

Gateway Mall  

Saturday, 9/7

from 2-4pm

and experience their 'tasting market' with local makers, while being serenaded by your favorite Fiddle Preacher, singing originals and jamming out on that fiddle.

Hope to see you there!

Pop over to the fb invite and let me know you're coming. :)

Spring 2016 Field Showing

May 2, 7-8pm

@utah museum of contemporary art

20 South West Temple, Salt Lake City

Come see the culmination of 5 weeks of feedback and finetuning of my original songs within this multi-discipline artist group.  This will be an informal “open studio” showing of visual art, new media, and short performances developed during this five-week workshop. Local artists and some who are currently participants in UMOCA’s Artist-in-Residence program will be presenting contemporary works and works-in-progress, and talking about their use of the Field Method of critique for this workshop. Dance Theatre Coalition is the official Field Network Site of Salt Lake City. This event is free and open to the public.


I will perform 3 songs that I have been working on for this showing. It's been a remarkable experience, working along side these artists. I hope you can make it down to enjoy some art, performance and get a taste of the Field Method process.
