Barbie’s guitar, washboard, lilting voice, and dancing feet have captured hearts solo, full band, and everything in between. She fronts The Schticklers, The Laketown Buskers, The Teflons and more, and has performed national radio, concerts, and festivals across the country, even as far away as Finland. She also teaches nine adult classes at the Old Town School in voice, guitar, and dance, has seven CD recordings, and has been lauded a “folk festival in a box." Barbie is known for her “stunning voice,” relaxed stage presence, clogging feet, red bicycle, and cutest dog named Dinah with a black patch eye.
