ABOUT

I've been playing guitar since I was 13. Played in alternative and cover bands in the 80's and 90's in and around Boston. Lately been doing a lot of acoustic finger style pre-ware blues stuff. Looking for another acoustic guitarist / vocalist that I can play lead and rhythm guitar and vocalize with. Possibly adding other instruments,(fiddle, keyboard, percussion, banjo, harmonica etc) but keeping it mostly acoustic. Looking to do coffee houses/ open mics etc. I'd like to do a mix of blues, classic rock and alternative songs. I like anything with a good beat and melody.
