ABOUT

Greetings,
I am musician with about 30 years experience. I grew up listening to classical and baroque as well as country and bluegrass music. I had piano lessons as a teenager and played in a rock band in high school (classic rock, punk, 70s and 80s rock). I have some classical training on the Contra upright Bass, but I also play bluegrass on it as well. I am an advanced bassist, acoustic guitar player (12 and 6 string), and 5-string banjo player (Deering Boston). I play bluegrass every week and I also play in a small chamber ensemble with my contrabass at my church. I enjoy multiple genres of music and would be willing to try most anything. My natural Affinity is for acoustic music but I also enjoy Hard Rock, classic, and punk, as well as sacred Music and even Jazz. I do play with a small bluegrass group but I am looking to expand.... Or if you are an experimental Bluegrass/folk musician we would be interested in having you join us.
