Audra Blankenship-Pierce has a vocal performance background going all the way back to her early childhood. She sang in school and church choirs, high school musicals and performed with “America’s Kids,” a feeder program for Disney. During her college years, Audra sang for two local rock bands. Audra became involved with the Oklahoma Celtic community upon enrolling her daughter in Scottish Highland dance in the mid 90's. Discovering an affinity for her Irish heritage and the music of the Celtic nations, her musical focus began to shift. Learning Irish Penny Whistle and Bodhran, Audra lent her skills to two popular Celtic bands from 1999-2012. In early 2013, Audra along with another friend set out to begin a new Celtic band. With the introduction of Shawna Kennedy, this project would soon come to be the entertaining and energetic group, Ravens Three.
