One of America's accordion champions, Janet has traveled over 250,000 miles performing in 22 countries and 25 states doing conventions and major events.
After being in "stage-show retirement," Janet decided a year ago to hit the come-back trail and attended her first Cotati Festival-"I had an absolute blast!" Since then she has been featured at the Texas Accordion Association's National Convention, Las Vegas International Accordion Convention, and has out a new CD.
Janet met the accordion at age eight from a door-to-door salesman. She soon became a top Los Angeles child- and teen-competition performer, winning numerous awards/championships at the Western States Accordion Festivals in the great accordion heydays of the 1950s. As a frequent performer on radio and TV and the Miss Universe Pageant, Janet's found her career.
She entered Brigham Young University's nationally-known entertainment program and soon found herself a major entertainer in the Rockies for the next five years. For the university she toured the USA, Far East and Europe (U.S. Defense Dept.), and five-months around the world (U.S. State Dept.).
