First life as a musician was from age 10 through early post-college years. Following a very long hiatus, began playing the acoustic drum kit again in the early 2000s. In 2007 I joined a Celtic & Americana band and have been gigging an average of 3 or 4 times times a month with them ever since. With this band I generally play a world percussion set of my own design. I would like an outlet to perform using my acoustic drum set, particularly in a band playing Alt-Country, Americana, Roots Rock, etc.
