Since then, she has discovered the joys of old-time fiddling, folk dancing, storytelling, and various other traditional arts. Kelsey plays fiddle and banjo and currently performs in the contra dance bands Turnip the Beet and Silver Sail, with Vermont-based folk musician Brendan Taaffe, and as a musical accompanist for her ma, poet Kory Wells.
