Irish traditional flute

Laura's flute playing has been described as "effortless, powerful and engaging." Highly regarded on both sides of the Atlantic, Laura is based in Baltimore, Maryland and is a two time recipient of the Maryland State Arts Council grant in solo performance.  She has performed throughout North America and in Ireland. Her recordings include two solo albums, Lucky Day (2010) and Tune for the Road (2005); an acclaimed duo recording, Forget Me Not (2014) with NY based fiddler Rose Flanagan; and Crabs in the Skillet (2011) with the Old Bay Ceili Band. A sought-after teacher, Laura has taught at the Catskills Irish Arts Week in East Durham, NY, and at workshops across the U.S.
