I started on classical violin at age 9, and switched to fiddle in 1960. Have focused for many years in the dance fiddle music of our region, the Pacific Northwest. Run Voyager Recordings & Publications, issuing traditional fiddle recordings from the Northwest and elsewhere. Play mostly dance music, from square dance to ballroom.
