About Me

Hi, I’m Vickie! I play in two established Bluegrass bands. One is more traditional (High Fidelity) than the other (Della Mae), both vocally and instrumentally. I also sing background with Patty Loveless. My love for traditional background vocals knows NO LIMITS! I’m on the Board of Trustees for the Bluegrass Hall of Fame and Museum, a graduate of Belmont University’s Commercial Music Program, and a very proud Kentuckian.

Teaching Style

I love a hands on approach with both bass and vocals and primarily want to teach students how to make music by ear. The end goal is always to be able to pick up the bass and be able to play along a song by ear with no hiccups. As far as vocals go, I love taking a student that is uncomfortable singing harmony vocals and giving them the courage and confidence to sing a harmony line because they have learned to HEAR it!!! It’s beautiful and exciting.
