Joyce is one of the founder members of the band.
A classically trained violinist taught by a pupil of the late great Max Rostal, she was brought up on Scottish country dancing by her Scottish mother and as a result has a great feel for dance music.
She was introduced to the Scottish fiddle by Achiltibuie fiddler Kenny John Macleod as a teenager and that was the end of the dancing and the start of a lifetime of fiddling.
Joyce has been the church organist and Choir Director at St Leonard’s church, Bursledon since she was 17 and as well as playing in the band she has been a member of the City of Southampton Orchestra and a freelance musician for many groups and Operatic societies.
Joyce teaches violin for the local music service and for many years she led a very successful children's music workshop at the Sidmouth Folk Festival and one of the nicest things to happen is to find some of those children (now grown up!) are performing in the folk world.
Joyce is responsible for running the band and for keeping the rest of them in order! She plays a Bridge Electric Fiddle.
