Autumn grew up surrounded by Irish music in the house.  She took up the tin whistle at age 12, and soon after started playing Irish flute, concertina, uilleann pipes, bouzouki, and a few other bizarre Breton and Bulgarian instruments. She started to play professionally at age 13 or so, and went on to win gold medals in several  Midwest Fleadhs through the years on flute,
