Jamie Vandenberg

Accordion, Vocals

Jamie teaches piano lessons and works as a musician in the Portland area. She met Brian and John through the extended community plays at Bethel Lutheran Church and was thrilled to be invited to play with Beltaine!

Jamie fell in love with the accordion in 2008. After playing the piano for most of her life, she was glad to have a more portable instrument. She appreciates the versatility of the accordion and loves how diverse and international accordion music can be. This is her first time playing Celtic music and also her first time collaborating with guys in kilts! Among Jamie’s favorite tunes are the highly melodic traditional Irish tunes and also the pub sing alongs. She is very glad to be making music with Beltaine!
