Jane Cisluycis


Jane Cisluycis grew up in St. Louis, MO. She attended NMU in the 1980's and, after some time off, graduated in 2003 with a Bachelor's Degree in Media Studies. Doing "In The Pines" and "Just Folks" is one of the highlights of her busy week. She especially loves doing field recordings for "In The Pines." This takes her to many regional and local festivals and concerts. She finds the usual Folk performer to be very down-to-earth and easy to work with, making work feel more like play!

Jane's 'day job' is as the Operations Coordinator for the Episcopal Diocese of Northern Michigan. Her current passions are gardening and delving into the Woody Guthrie Songbook. Jane has a daughter, Willa, who attends school in Traverse City and a son, Axel who is married and lives in Portland, OR.
