With help from some wonderful musicians, namely pianist Liz Donaldson, she was introduced to the concepts of playing for folk dances − improvising on simple tunes while playing in small ensembles. What an amazing 180 degree change from the music she had grown up playing − no conductor, learning tunes by ear, playing rhythmically and improvising off the page.
