Rebecca's love of Celtic music started before she knew what Celtic music was - her father was very fond of folk and traditional music and introduced her to artists such as Burl Ives and The New Christy Minstrels, as well as popular performers like Peter, Paul and Mary. It wasn't until much later that Rebecca realized that her dad's 'folk music' was the Irish and Scottish tunes and songs of his own heritage; today, as she performs many of the same melodies she heard as a young girl, she often remembers with fondness listening to those old recordings with her father.
These days, Rebecca can be found at faires and festivals as well as Irish pubs, performing with her bands, Black Oak Shillelagh and On The Doss. Fiddle is Rebecca's specialty - she is known professionally as Rebecca The Fiddler - and she occasionally adds vocals to some of the music of Black Oak Shillelagh. She is also an unabashed computer geek and gamer; one of her favorite activities is to find the music in video and computer games (and certain Sci-Fi TV shows!) and learn to play it on fiddle or keyboard.
