SEEKINGKeyboard, Piano, Accordion.
Very eclectic and open-minded musician - I listen to everything. Play rhythm and bass guitars, as well as lap dulcimer (w pickups) on which I'm considered an innovator – ie, not just trad style but fiddle tunes, blues and rock. Have played a lot of Americana, blues and rock. Have good attitude, equipment and car.
