Ballad Pilgrimage

Copyright November 2012

I wrote this after taking a holiday to England and visiting Lincoln.  The article links the Child Ballad, Hugh and the Jew's Daughter to the history of Lincoln to my own spiritual feelings regarding ballads.

Coming back through ballads

Copyright January 31, 2012

I wrote this about my performance comeback after a two year sabbatical following the death of my husband, Steve Goff.  I had found it difficult to recapture my desire to sing or perform, but when I planned a concert for the Yellowknife Storytelling Festival, I found myself pulled into the magic and power of ballads again.  The idea was to present 5 versions of the same ballad all in one performance.

Rosaleen Gregory, Serpent's Knee

This CD was a treat.  I've performed with Rosaleen on a few occasions, and she did a wonderful review of one of my own CDs.  Click on the CD image to see her website.
