Beginning with simple chords and hymns at school her Junior school teacher Joe Foley, a keen folkie taught Michelle her first simple fingerpicking pattern and re-enforced the love of folk being kindled at home. There has been no looking back! On to secondary and guitar lessons that hed to be in the classical style added another facet of Michelle's style. Here, school choirs brought confidence to Michelle's sound and Jazz bands helped her to learn to play bass. Whilst all this was going on, Michelle still found time to play folk at home, only coming out of "the closet" in 2006 at Droylsden Folk Festival and is being seen increasingly at folk clubs around the north west.
