With roots that extend across the ocean to Irish counties Mayo, Leitrim, Cork & Kilkenny and family ties to distinguished Irish-Americans like former NYC Mayor James Walker, "Our Gang" actor & war hero George T. Wendelken as well as legendary actor Brian Dennehy, Susan is also heavily involved in the Irish music scene. In 1999, she joined the celtic-rock band ALTERnaTRAD. Their combination of traditional Irish music and rock & roll struck a chord with the press and soon generated a sizeable fan base.
