When not playing the flute or tending to the family, she operates a property management business and a cleaning business.   She moved to Grand County from upstate New York in 1990 after earning her Master's Degree in Therapeutic Recreation.  She started playing the flute in 3rd grade and now plays with the Alpine Classic Strings, performs for wedding ceremonies and enjoys every Sunday playing at the Lord of the Valley Lutheran Church in Granby. Her favorite music to play is classical, but her favorites for listening are classic rock and alternative rock.

Dennis Stafford (12 string guitar, recorder, bodhran, concertina, vocals) lives on the Stillwater Pass Road near Grand Lake, and works for the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District.  He’s played guitar and piano as a hobby and regularly plays at church.  Dennis has a seemingly endless supply of Irish jokes.
