Band to Join, Acoustic Guitar, Banjo, Mandolin, Fiddle, Upright bass, Ukulele.

ABOUT

I play old time fiddle music, and mandolin. Dance music, front porch pickin' tunes: two-steps, waltzes, reels, slow airs.

I have a repertoire of civil war tunes, play a few Scandinavian wedding dance tunes, and I can play square dances, contras, or background on oldies folk/rock from the 60's and early 70's.

I love to jam, and so you may find me at the first Sunday mall jam in Fergus Falls, the second Tuesday old-time jam at the Red Raven, or at the jams at the Holmes Theater in Detroit Lakes.

I'd love to find someone who plays claw hammer banjo, or a rhythm player who chords by ear on acoustic guitar.
