Lindsey was born in the Bronx, raised in Queens, and went to high school in Manhattan--she is a city girl to say the least. After attending University of Delaware with her degree in Art History, Lindsey went on to pursue her Masters in Arts Administration at Drexel University. Coming from a strong administrative background, Lindsey helped to sell-out concerts, develop annual appeals, secure strategic publicity, and write marketing and community engagement plans with various non-profits in Philadelphia. Lindsey's Master's thesis focused on the oral histories of multi-generational arts participants--she hopes to highlight the unique and vibrant stories of Philadelphia Folksong Society's members, fest-goers, and artists. August 2016 will be Lindsey's FIRST Folk Festival--tell her your stories!
