For the last 3 years I have not been singing much, either as a member of the Wilson Family or as a Solo performer. Within the last year, after much prompting, I have begun to venture out, appearing at clubs and festivals when asked. After my 'break', although I will no longer be singing as a member of the Wilson Family, I have now, however, begun to accept the occasional 'Solo' Booking!

Sadly our sister Josephine died in infancy. I attended school in Billingham, where I developed a passion for sports and art, which continued until my early twenties. I became involved in the folk scene in the mid 1970`s and along with my siblings, The Wilson Family, frequented folk clubs and festivals throughout Great Britain and Europe, producing several albums on the way. Due to this and my work and family commitments art work took a back seat at this point.
