From Co. Armagh, Stéphanie's singing is deeply rooted in a long lineage of singers, stretching back to her great grandmother who was the celebrated Ulster folksinger Sarah Makem and indeed, to her granduncle, Tommy Makem. Stéphanie is currently collecting and collating Sarah's work with a view to publication in the near future.
Stéphanie sings a lot of Sarah's own songs together with songs from southeast Ulster in both Gaelic and English. She has performed on several televised music programmes including, 'Flosc'(TG4), 'Abair Amhran' (TG4), 'Geantraí'(RTE), and 'Blas Ceoil'(BBC). Stephanie has also been a guest perfomer on the ‘Armagh Piper’s Club 40 Years’ and ‘Blúiríní Blasta’ albums.
