ABOUT

I've been playing banjo for 20 years. I started out absorbed in bluegrass, but primarily play Americana/Root, Irish, and folk genres. I enjoy taking tunes out of context, and reinterpreting them. I also play acoustic guitar, and drums, and sing lead and backing vox.

I list drums so that you'll know my experience, but I am not interested in playing drums with new bands.

I'd like to create a duo with female vocals, trading lead and harmony parts. Someone who can also play guitar would be a plus!

I have a large collection of acoustic cover tunes that I lead and have written a few originals.

I'm looking for other acoustic musicians to play with. I'm a decent rhythm guitarist, and like to switch between that and banjo. I'm currently play banjo in an Irish band, and drums in a rock band.
