Living in Maryland, Judy has been on the road since the early 1990s, making her own the songs and ballads of traditional Americana and the British Isles. She has family roots in Virginia, lucky enough to be born into a family who loved music.
This led to her personal discovery of the rich and varied treasure of folk music and was the inspiration for recordings. Judy has four full length CDs. Her first CD of unaccompanied traditional songs and ballads, “ If You Sing Songs…” was released in 1998, followed two years later by “Far From the Lowlands”. “Tenting Tonight: Songs of the Civil War” was released in 2007, and “Lincoln's America” in 2009.
She is respected on both sides of the Atlantic as both a singer and interpreter of traditional songs. Her vast and varied repertoire has resulted in an array of entertaining and informative themed programs enthusiastically received by universities, historical societies, festivals, and folks wherever she goes.
