Lynn was born and educated in New Zealand. She learnt piano accordion as a child but gave this up in her late teens.
She travelled to the UK (as many kiwis do) to work, travel and gain further experience of life. After several years of this she met her husband Roger and has lived in Wales ever since. (26 years). Bringing up musical children reawakened the enjoyment she gained in playing an instrument as a teenager. She learned piano, then finally bought an accordion after a 30 year gap in playing. Retirement has allowed her to play the accordion without protest from her offspring who have now fledged the nest, and Roger tolerates it for an easy life. Joining the No1 Ladies has given her an outlet for her playing and an incentive to improve and make what she hopes is a modest contribution to the orchestra.
