I am a harpist and songwriter of blues, pop and folk influence based in the SF Bay Area. I spent 4 years studying in Scotland and hold a BA in Scottish harp and Gaelic song from the RSAMD (now RCS) in Glasgow.
It did rain a lot. My own songwriting melds hints of traditional music with bluesy riffs and melodies to create a style not generally associated as having much of anything to do with a harp. Got your 'screw you' songs, your creepy stolen baby songs, and sometimes, I play an unremarkable banjo.
Interesting fact: my grandfather, Gordon Jenkins, wrote the song ‘Crescent City Blues’ which Johnny Cash shamelessly ripped off for his well known song ‘Folsom Prison Blues’.
