ABOUT

I have been playing music most of my life but I have not been performing for many (many) years. Back in the day I was in a cover band. I have mostly been playing (solo) pre-war jazz, country blues, and fingerstyle guitar. I am looking to get back into the game. A band, maybe a duo, perhaps combo focusing on 'creative' interpretations of yesterday; swing, jazz, country blues, etc. but I am very open to trying new things. No ego here!! If this sounds interesting to you, let's talk...or better yet let's make some music!
