ABOUT

In addition to Guitar, I play mountain dulcimer, Irish bouzouki, mandolin, ukulele, bodhran, and several others. I have credits on several niche market albums (mainly Christmas albums). Overall, I focus on Bluegrass and Irish/Celtic, but I have played in many different acoustic genres (folk, folk rock, acoustic blues, etc.).
