I'm a single mother to a gorgeous little girl (age 10). I work full time, while completing my studies towards a degree in Liberal Arts/Celtic Studies at Harvard. I'm a citizen of Portugal who's grown up and still living in the "States."
I'd like to say something interesting about myself, like I'm some genetically engineered monkey who was cloned and born from a test tube in some secret lab in a small cottage on the Blasket Islands or something, but my life really isn't all that exciting.
I do have my fair share of stories, oddities or not, so if you feel so inclined, feel free to ask whatever you've got on your mind. :)
Otherwise, I think that about covers it for now.
Traditional Irish (obviously), jazz, blues, folk, folk rock, indie, "world", classical... a little bit of everything...
Well, applications for BCMFest 2010 (Jan. 8-9) are due very soon -- July 1st.
This year we're focusing on the core tradition, so trad ensembles, session hounds, and tradition bearers, please consider applying. But we won't discount new and progressive collaborations, either. If it's Celtic-based, and it's good, BCMFest wants YOU.
Download an application and send it in by the end of the month! If you know someone you think should appear at BCMFest, pass this message along to them. And if you have applied in the past, you don't even need to send a sound sample.
ALSO: In the true fashion of a 21st-century traditional music event, BCMFest is now on Twitter! Click here, and then do a search for BCMFest. Then you keep up with all the BCMFest happenings.
