ABOUT

I have been a musician since 1972, I started out playing rhythm guitar, I learned the claw hammer banjo in 1979. I started playing electric bass in January, 1982, by 1984 I had switched to the upright bass and through the years I've switched back and forth, depending on the band I was in at the time. I've traveled and played with several bands through the years. I've played, bluegrass/gospel, cowboy, Western swing, jazz, contemporary and Pentecostal gospel, and country. My husband and I switched to all gospel in November, 2000 when we got saved and began traveling with several different evangelistic teams as the musicians. I've been the bass player at Faith Pentecostal Church in Breathitt County, KY since July, 2006. In 2016 I traveled with the Ole Stump Kickers ministry as their upright bass player.
