Katie Spencer

Katie picked up her Dad's guitar in December 2012, to stop it from collecting any more dust. Since her first union with the guitar, she has developed her own style, based on her eclectic music taste - an ever changing and infinite list at that! Growing up in Yorkshire and going to many folk festivals has nurtured Katie's love for folk music, and has recently inspired her to begin writing her own material.
