I play with Prairie Smoke of La Crosse, Wisconsin. We play a variety of folk, Celtic, and old-time music. I am retired now, after 30+ years as a Physical Therapist and then teacher of Physical Therapy. I enjoyed the challenges of my job, but it is great now to have the opportunity to travel more. At home and while traveling, playing music is a priority and it has been a fun challenge to start developing my skills at joining the jam and to consider how to translate playing with a band-cohort to playing more on my own.
