Since my last entry (a year and a half ago), I have moved to Peabody MA from Reading MA and have become a supervisor at work (Business-to-Business Research).

I've been playing more Cajun and less Irish music lately. Just happenstance, I guess.

I play Cajun and Zydeco on fiddle and mando with The Squeezebox Stompers.

I do some double fiddling with my buddy Herb Smooth on some Celtic stuff with the Jolly Rogues.

I play guitar and mando occasionally with the great fiddler/ fiddle educator/ all-around nice guy Dave Reiner with the Reiner Family band.

And I do an ocassional "Beatles meets Bluegrass" stint with Barry Michaud and Herb Smooth as the Breakheart Ramblers. 

Last weekend, I suprised my  first musical mentor banjoist Jim McCrohan of Shrewsbury MA by sitting in at one of  his gigs.

I was in his band (Jug o Punch) from about 1975-1977. Jim has had the band and a steady Sunday gig at the Oldtimer Restaurant in Clinton MA for 37 years!  That must be a record.  

Cheers for now,
