A fulltime Sergeant Detective in the major case unit of the Cambridge Police Department, Pauline began singing in Ireland in 2000 while on a trip with the Boston Police Gaelic Column of Pipes and Drums. Her distinct tone and melodic quality caught the attention of all; including Mr. Robert Honeysucker of the renowned Longy school of music who selected her as his student in 2004, Shortly after the 9/11 attacks, Pauline began answering requests to sing the national anthem. In the years that have passed she has performed at dozens of venues in greater Boston including the State House, Faneuil Hall and Fenway Park. Pauline is best known today as an Irish American folk singer. She often can be found making guest appearances at Mr. Dooley’s authentic Irish tavern with a local Irish show band DEVRI. Pauline takes no money for appearances and for the past three years has hosted a brilliant concert titled “A Celtic Crossing” at the Milton High School auditorium. Each year she has packed the 800 seat theater. All proceeds she gives to the Jimmy Fund through her involvement in the Pan Mass Challenge. Her vocal success has caught the attention of many. When she was offered the Wilbur she wanted to make it a benefit for a charity she is very fond of and is directed by police officers, hence CFKWC.
