Music:

June began playing piano at age 6, and over the years has added harp, hammered and lap dulcimers, guitar, and Native American flute. She enjoys performing, composing, and arranging, and  performs for a variety of venues, including weddings, receptions, festivals, churches, libraries, and schools.

Also a storyteller, she continues the tradition of the troubadours by combining stories with music to create a scene in which the audience often plays a part.

June has performed for Mississippi State University’s Conference on Oral Traditions, Nantahala Village Resort in North Carolina; the MS. Humanity Council’s 40th Anniversary Celebration; the MS. Museum Association; MS. Artist Showcase, and Double Decker Festival in Oxford, MS, as well as numerous schools, libraries, and other venues.

She is a member of ISFHC (International Society of Folk Harpists and Craftsmen)
