BIO Judith Weikle was born and raised in rural Michigan and currently resides in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Upon graduating from the University of Hawai'i at Hilo, with a BA in Music, Ms. Weikle began the pursuit of Celtic Music in earnest. Drawing from her Irish/Scottish and Appalachian Heritage, Judith collects and sings Traditional Celtic Repertoire. Recently, Judith was honored with a 2006 Individual Artist Development Grant in the Traditional Folk Arts Category from the Wyoming Arts Council. In addition to performing regionally at various Celtic Cultural Events and other concert venues, Ms Weikle is busy promoting her Debut CD: Pirates, Poets and Patriots. It has been a long journey to the recording of my new Cd. But I have arrived. This has been a dream of mine for many a moon and in May 2006, amidst the backdrop of the Wasatch Mountains, in Draper, Utah at Annex Recording, I recorded my best loved Irish and Scottish songs and ballads. Joining me in this incredible feast of music, were Kate MacLeod, Dylan Schorer, Steven Nelson, Giles Reaves, and Jonathon and Gael Schults.
