She specializes in bowed strings, from Old Time and Irish fiddle to lyra, kamenj, viola da gamba, vielle, rebec and pardessus de viole. Dr. Chancey received her PhD from the Union Institute, and is currently writing and researching on the topic of improvisation. Formerly a member of the Folger Consort and the rock band Blackmore's Night, she teaches, performs, produces recordings, writes book reviews for Early Music America magazine, and is the director of the SoundCatcher method, teaching amateur musicians how to play by ear.
