Bett Padgett

Bett majored in voice performance in college, but found her strength was in teaching music. She studied piano throughout her youth and took up stringed instruments at age 11. She has taught music in Raleigh NC since 1978. A multi-instrumentalist, she enjoys sharing her knowledge of many instruments. She challenges herself by playing guitar in various tunings with partial capos in different positions. She began writing her own songs in 1989 and began recording in 1997. Bett has eight albums on her Ceilidhe’s Music label. She has hosted a world renowned house concert series (Little Lake Hill House Concerts) in Raleigh since 2000 bringing musicians from around the globe to entertain audiences in the central part of North Carolina.
A multi-instrumentalist, she records with guitar, high-strung guitar, mandolin, banjo, mandola, piano and harp. Her rich, warm voice welcomes the listener as if to invite them to sit for the entirety of her lovely collection of well-crafted and beautifully arranged songs. You may sense that she is singing to an audience of one.
Bett’s belief of strength in family is prevalent in this CD. Unity of family and fellowship while facing issues in today’s world contribute to our understanding of ourselves. These are common themes throughout her music.
Style ranges from classic folk, old-time and Celtic.
