A Barrie native, Peggy comes from a musical family, and was in several choirs and orchestras growing up. Always a student of music, she studied violin with John Montague Of The Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto, voice and performance with Elizabeth Riddell of Barrie, and Tammy Rogers then, of North Bay.
Her passion for music is still very apparent, as she currently sings with the Trinity United Church Choir, The Occasional Singers, and Heart of Gold, a Neil Young tribute band that tours through the summer months. Peggy also directs the Trinity United Church Junior Choir, and is a percussionist with the North Bay J.O.Y. Band (Just Older Youth).
