ABOUT

I am an accomplished accordionist and string bassist. I also sing baritone or bass and have vast knowledge and experience with Eastern European and Balkan music including Greek, Bulgarian, Polish, Russian, Ukrainian, and music of the former Yugoslavia(Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Macedonia, Bosnia-Hercegovina, and Montenegro). I am also fairly well versed in traditional Country-Western music and polkas. On bass I am also well versed in all of these categories.
