I have sung with Irish bands West of Shannon, The Waywards, and Fáinne, as well as the Balkan chamber group Mosaic and many choirs. I have performed at the Seattle Folklife Festival, the Phoenix St. Patrick’s Day Faire, the New York Statue of Liberty Centennial, the Adriatic Chamber Music Festival, the El Cerrito Free Folk Festival, and the Bay Celtic Festival. I have been a featured soloist with Viva la Musica and Sunset Youth Orchestra and sung with San Francisco Lyric Opera, Pocket Opera, City Summer Opera, and the Bay Area Summer Opera Theater Institute. I have a BA in Music and an MM in Voice Performance from Notre Dame de Namur University and I am an active teacher of singing.

I also write fiction using the name Skye Allen. My YA urban fantasy Pretty Peg was released in June 2014. Visit my author website, allenskye.com, for more.
