ABOUT

Cut my teeth playing acoustic delta blues and folk music. Got interested in Jazz and spent 2 years at Berklee College of Music Between 1979-81. Gave up my dream of becoming a professional musician when I had a son and needed a steady job. After several years of rarely touching my guitar I started again focusing on electric blues and old time rock and roll. Would like to further explore traditional American Blues from the 40's and 50's with like minded folks. My goal is to have fun, keep learning and get in some local gigs.
