Kenny Baker, Buck Owens/Don Rich, Hank Williams, Bill Monroe, Old Crow Medicine Show, Ray Price, Bob Wills (and all his fiddlers esp. Johnny Gimble and Joe Holley), Byron Berline, Jay Ungar, Benny Thomasson, Eddie South, Stephane Grappelli, enough already-you get the idea. In general, I love honky-tonk, bluegrass and swing.

I've played piano since I can remember but one day in my late 30's the inspired thought came to me that I had to learn to play the fiddle. I was immediately and obsessively addicted. Playing the fiddle changed my life in so many ways. Now I play swingin', retro, honky-tonk country with my band The Tobacco Valley Rollers. I love to sing lead and harmony, too.
