Gretchen plays the violin, mandolin, and guitar. Her love of music has blossomed into her own songwriting, which is a burgeoning aspect of her artistry. The Annie Moses Band began when she was nine years old, when all she could think about was rescuing wild animals - she joined the group full time at age eleven, when her dream was to own a racehorse barn. Now she prefers to play the music with her siblings and leave the pets at home. 

Besides writing and performing, Gretchen also enjoys cooking, needlework, reading, and riding horses. She is currently completing her Bachelor’s degree in English Literature through the University of London’s International Program. 

So if you run into Gretchen after the concert, you can talk about mandolin brands, Charles Dickens, or horse breeds.
