Started out with Indian Creek Delta Boys. We collected lots of Midwest music. (See www.dearoldillinois.com for Garry's excellent book & CDs) Moved to Chicago & played with Polecats, Volo Bogtrotters. Current bands: New Bad Habits (w/ Tim Foss, Andy Gribble, & Dave Landreth), Little Egypt Pepsteppers (w/ Jim Nelson & Robert Freeman) & VigorTones (w/ Jim Nelson, Dave Landreth, Geoff Seitz, Marc Rennard & others) & The Pure Drop (w/ Jim McVeigh & Paul Kaye).
I love Midwest fiddling especially, but also enjoy just about any traditional music (Swedish, Irish, English, etc).
