Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Upright bass.

ABOUT

Over the past 20 years, I have been very active in the bluegrass world - playing in numerous bands. In my younger years I have played in classic rock bands. Somewhere inbetween, I have been in a few folk music trios. So, musically speaking, I have a wide range of interests and experiences

If I had to pick a main instrument and style I would have to say rhythm guitar (both acoustic and electric). Secondarly, I play upright acoustic bass and drums. I also do vocals and sing in the baritone range...sometimes I can pull-off bass.

I am looking to join an existing band - bluegrass, classic rock or folk/Americana. If the pieces fell together, I'd also take on the task of forming a new band.

If you would be interested in getting together and seeing what happens, I could easilymake myself available. As an aside note, the recording of Cowboy Song was played/recorded live some forty years ago at the Alaska Folk Festival in Juneau, Alaska.

As a second aside,our bluegrass band is searching for an upright bass player. I'd play bass but we would then be short a guitar player. So, if you play stand-up bass do get intouch. Best way to reach me is - doylebur at comcast dot net
