ABOUT

Greetings,
I a 40 something Year old Bluegrass musician and I play five string banjo, guitar, and upright bass (also sing a few). Primarily, I play jam sessions and I do get together with a band every now and then. It can be hard to find other bluegrass musicians, so I would like to reach out and see if anyone wants to have more jam Sessions or even if anyone would like to put together a band and play a gig or two. I have one or two friends that also play and I have a young son that can play some fiddle, So if you are in striking distance don’t be afraid to reach out. Bluegrass, English and Irish folk, country, and American folk are also favorites of ours.
