Sara grew up in New Hampshire but has lived in Arkansas, North Carolina, Ohio, Montana, New York, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Scotland and England. As a youngster in North Carolina she first heard a lot of mountain music and her love for the old time banjo music and songs developed from this experience. Sara’s repertoire is as fresh and relevant as ever.
Sara’s son Kieron Means was born in the United States and grew up in Britain gaining a great love of the music of both traditions as well as the contemporary scene. He has the same feeling for old-time songs and ballads and has followed his mother’s experience with knowledge of the traditional songs and the people who sing them.
