Ginger is a Texas native now living in Ohio. She’s taken her life-long passion for music and combined it with a love of history and tradition, and melded into a delightful style of Celtic Folk! Performing both traditional and contemporary songs, she plays her autoharp and whistles. She is also a songwriter “in the old style” according to Andy M. Stewart of “Silly Wizard” from Scotland.
Ginger and her harps have traveled to the blue Caribbean, the glaciers of Alaska and her heart’s home, Ireland. She started performing at faires and music festivals in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana, then traveled to Wyoming and Colorado before landing in Ohio. She has found new audiences there and in Pennsylvania, New York and West Virginia.
She has shared the stage with Red McWilliams, jammed with Aoife Clancy, Jimmy Crowley, Jeb Marum, the Brobdinagian Bards, the Heritage Minstrels and the Bedlam Bards. She was a regular at the Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma Renaissance Faires where her friends gifted her with a special name, “Lark of the Clans.”
Since coming to Ohio, Ginger has found some wonderful new singing partners! You will often find her accompanying Joe Rollin Porter or Brian Henke with her whistles. Recently, she has formed a duo with Cleveland singer-songwriter, Jim Snively, called “Pocket Change.” She’s also adding her whistles and harp to the Euclid group, Witch and Toad. She often has a duet going with rising Ohio guitar star, Gary Parker (aka Major Lee) – and she is always ready to find a whistle harmony or pull a shaker out of her bag (as she quotes herself: Music is a Participative Sport!)
