Alison comes from the Toad Rock near Tunbridge Wells.   As many Earth Scientists will inform you, this spa with many natural rock formations is a place of power and healing.

Since discovering her Fathers ancestry in 1994, Alison has been researching her ,"Ancestral Places", and their Native ritual, music and dance.

She has also lived amongst the Sami, an indigenous people of Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Kola Peninsula of Russia.  They are also known as the Lapps.

Her songs are influenced by these experiences, visiting the Sami and the magic of the Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights and also the Native Traditions within the British Isles. She has researched these in Scotland, Orkney, Northern Ireland and Kent.
