Jeff Hino


I've been playing professionally in Corvallis since 1976, in a host of bands, from old-time, bluegrass, swing, country, folk to acoustic and electric blues. My main squeeze is slide guitar: National Steel, dobro, lap steel, and pedal steel; but also am a solid 5-string banjo player. Increasingly fascinated by the ukulele.
