Annie is an award-winning violinist, educator, and a popular fixture anywhere lively fiddle music is required. She gets more compliments on her bowing arm than almost anything else.  She instructs full-time at Celtic Traditions and the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts. Other music projects include the Irish Wakers, Kitty Lie Over, and the Psycho Acoustic Ceili Band.
