ABOUT

I play mostly finger-picking style guitar. I play a few open mikes, and on my own at home, but I'm interested in more opportunities to play out. I'm also interested in jamming and swapping songs with anyone who has an interest in good acoustic music. You can reach me at under the name kjbauman.

Influences

I play several of my own songs and covers of lots of older, more popular folk and rock acts, e.g., Paul Simon, Dylan, the Band, Grateful Dead what have you. I have learned songs by Joanna Newsom and Vashti Bunyan. Also fingerstyle versions of old favorites -- Down and out, Bye Bye Blackbird.

I started learning some clawhammer banjo a while back, but I haven't kept that up. Something I could revive if it comes in handy.
