ABOUT

American Roots. Jug Band/String Band. Swing. Folk. Funny. Tight vocal harmonies. As a folk singer, I like to play a few songs of a left-leaning political nature, not too strident.

I write songs and collect gems from the last 100+ years. Many songs you never heard, but may be destined to be new favorites. Some you heard as a child or heard your grandmother sing.

Putting together a new act. Looking to play folk festivals in the summer. House concerts in the winter. I’m not unwilling to play in some bars, but I’m not very interested in a bar band. I like to work listening rooms.

Willing to work on music over the Internet if location is further away.

Hoping for someone with sense of humor. Playful on stage. Lightness of spirit. Kindness.
