Helen’s warm, versatile voice and emotionally satisfying phrasing have enthralled many audiences, including those at the Ennis Trad Festival, the Liverpool Irish Festival, Willie Clancy Week in Miltown Malbay, and many Irish sessions around London and elsewhere. She continues to perform, with her husband Duck Baker, in venues dotted between California and Sardinia.
Shake the Blossom Early is Helen’s album of traditional Irish love songs – available from Bandcamp as a download or CD.


A track from the album, ‘As I Roved Out’, was selected for the Rough Guide to Irish Music Second Edition. You can buy Helen’s track or the whole album from Amazon.
