She is best known as a solo performer, however, her most well-known recording is 2004’s It Suits Me Well, an album of songs written by, arranged, or associated with her longtime idol Sandy Denny. Before this she was a member folk-rock bands, including Kelsay and the Ragged Heroes, and has also worked with Gordon Giltrap and Tony Moore on Midsummer Cushion. On Movers And Shakers, she played and sang alongside Gerry Conway, Ric Sanders, John Kirkpatrick, and Jethro Tull’s Martin Barre, and she has toured with the Vikki Clayton Band, which includes Jethro Tull co-founder Clive Bunker on the drums.
