Teri  grew up in a music loving family. She started playing guitar as a teenager, singing with her brothers and sisters, and became interested in Bluegrass music in her early 20's.

She played guitar in several local DC area bands until transitioning to bass in the early 80's, and subsequently honed her bass skills with various local Northern VA bands. In 1991 she moved to the Northern Shenandoah Valley near Winchester, VA and became the permanent bassist for Patent Pending.  She later was a member of Cliff Waldron and the New Shades of Grass. When Cliff retired from music, she joined her long time friend, Bill Emerson, and was a founding member of Bill Emerson and Sweet Dixie. Teri lives near Winchester, VA and provides lead and harmony vocals for Circa Blue in addition to her bass duties

"Teri brings a wealth of experience and skill, and is a perfect fit," said the band's Steve Harris.  "With the recent addition of fiddle player/vocalist Malia Furtado and Teri, it has added a whole new dimension to Circa Blue."
