ABOUT

I am looking for one or two fellow acoustic guitar players and vocalist to join and have some fun playing out in small venues in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. Forty years ago I learned to play and sing for the love of the music. I have played professionally during my college years in an acoustic duo and also in a touring rock & roll band for two years when I was in my early 30's. Retired now, I'm just looking to have some fun with music with fellow like minded musicians. Possibly play out again.
