Laura grew up in a musical, singing family in the mountains of western North Carolina and from a young age loved the close  harmonies which her mother and her aunts made when they sang together. 

She has always felt a deep connection to the old songs, Child Ballads, and broadsides which she enjoys researching and singing in her inimitable way.  No matter where she has  worked--most recently in the nonprofit world-- she has brought singing to her role.

Also an accomplished baker, Laura's Buttersong Baking Company supplies guests of the Miracle Grounds Coffee Shop (at North Carolina's historic Crossnore School) with delectable baked goods, truly "Music for Your Mouth!"
