Playing and studying music most of my life. Came to fiddle late, at 41, but worked hard at it. Read music, played in college orchestra, fiddler for song/dance folklore troupe Renaissance Cadienne from Lafayette LA for 7 years. Two tours of France, one of Nova Scotia. Played fest in Berea KY,(greatest place on earth), Florida, all over LA. Mostly record now in home studio, play out when I can. Old rock guitarist from way back, started piano at 8 or 9, cornet at 11, guitar at 13. One semester at Berklee in 1972, Seems I play mostly Irish these days,,,bit of Scottish, bit of OT. Been listening to Irish/Scottish since 1988. Been to Ireland in 1998. Loved it . The banjo bug has awakened again,,,you can find me on the BanjoHangout, too
