Martha is no stranger to AlgomaTrad, having been there as a teacher and dance caller. She is excited to be coming back again this year as a banjo teacher. Martha comes from musical stock; her mother a fiddler and her father a musician and dance caller. Martha worked for the Ottawa Folklore Centre first as a teacher and then as the administrator for their music school before moving to Peterborough, Ontario where she sings, plays Irish flute and clawhammer banjo. Martha is now a teacher at Rowan Tree Children’s School.
