The Ash Grove …

For the singing schools 2012 Sweet Dreams album I asked Finley to sing The Ash Grove.  An old-fashioned song with weird lyrics that sound like they come from Shakespeare and  a melody that’s full of runs and trills that would challenge any singer little lone a 7 year old.  However, in true Finley-style she took on the challenge with gusto, worked extremely hard and recorded a beautiful version of this classic.  The Ash Grove is a song written in the early 1800’s and also happens to be one of my Grandmother’s favorite songs.

Last year Finley was part of a duo with fellow singer, Simone, but this year they decided to part and take on new challenges suitable for their style and vocal range.  A move that has worked out favorably for both singers and has kept these two the best of friends.

When she’s not performing in a singing show Finley can be found spending time with her family fishing on a lake.  She also loves to dance, is an accomplished skier, plays soccer and is a huge Stanford Football fan.  She is also a wonderful big sister to a brother.
