She has a classic folksinger's voice... clear and high, yet retaining graceful simplicity.
Once you learn to pronounce her Ukrainian name correctly you can play her CD over and over again. My listener's loved her song choices... especially the ones taught to her by the great Scottish folksinger, Jean Redpath.

Hoppin' John also consists of a motley crew of fun- loving gypsy musicians who join the band from time to time, adding banjo, bass, mandolin, or whatever the inspiration is at the time.
