Carolyn has worked as a radio presenter and regularly sings on radio.

In 1981 she made her first album, 'Banks of Tyne' on the Dingle label and she can be heard singing on Kathryn Tickell's CD 'The Northumberland Collection'.  Her recent solo albums, 'All the fine young men' and 'Dawn Chorus' as well as 'Peppers & Tomatoes' were produced by her own company, Reiver Records which has now re-issued 'Banks of Tyne' in CD format.

Carolyn is also featured on REAL, a 2001 CD release by the Scottish Borders Tourist Board. The CD comprises 17 tracks by various artists and reflects the rich literary, historical and cultural traditions of the Scottish Borders. All proceeds from sales go to charity.
