Wyoming woman goes live with music after back struggle
CHEYENNE, WYO. | By NIKKI KOTTMANN (AP) — A Wyoming woman has expanded her talent in music to include live performances.
Twenty-three-year-old Jonni Marie Wiltse, of Cheyenne, got more interested in music after a back injury ended her career as a competitive gymnast.
Wiltse tells the Wyoming Tribune Eagle she fell in love with indie folk music, especially artists such as The Head and the Heart and Fleet Foxes.
After a stint in modeling, Wiltse returned to Cheyenne and underwent back surgery.
She explored her skills with the ukulele and piano and now plays regularly during open mic night at a bar in Cheyenne.
