Degen credits a musical mom and family to her love of music.
As a child and young woman Wanda sang in the Montague Methodist
choir. She performed with her first folk group, The White Lake 4Hers,
at the age of 12. With a background of flute and piano, Wanda began
her immersion into the dulcimer and autoharp worlds in the fall
of 1971 as a freshman at MSU. Based in East Lansing ever since,
her music collaborations include Lady of the Lake and The
Troublesome Lasses and duos with Pete Wittig, Dan Giacobassi
and Kitty Donohoe. Wanda's recordings include The Valley of Abundance
(all instrumental) and Of Woods and Water - Songs of the
Great Lakes Region.
