Charlotte Ivy is native Texan who grew up in Dallas but has lived in El Paso for a while. She was lured to the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia by friends who encouraged her music, song writing, singing, and story telling. She went to Virginia for a visit when as she say's "the sounds of the mountains stole my heart!"
Charlotte was fortunate to be introduCED to Mike Lee, who resides in Buchanan, VA. Mike became her guitar instructor, mentor, collaborator, and friend. He introduced Charlotte to Bluegrass and encouraged her song writing, adding a touch of Bluegrass to Charlotte's traditional county style and sound. Charlotte and Mike worked together to produce a cd of original songs last April. Charlotte has several more songs finished and ready for her second cd.
