Hello! 

I teach and play harmonica. My greatest strength is playing on all kinds of folk songs while I continue to develop my Celtic/Traditional, and Blues/Jazz-blues playing on a professional level. 

I play with Gallowglass Irish Band, The Tango Cowboys, Robert Blake, and many others. I organized and performed seven blues gigs with regional guitar great Hambone Wilson (sadly he's leaving our area to move back east). Most recent recording job was with a wonderful local original song bluegrass group 'Crooked Constellation', and we just performed those numbers at the Stringboard Jamboree. 

I also sing and play octave mandolin, and some mandolin and piano/keyboards. 

I am a kind and patient teacher and easy to work with in any and all professional contexts. I generally charge $50/hr for teaching and $75-$300 for gigs, depending on all the things, and $100 per song recorded. Slided scale may be discussed for sure. 

Once I hear your material, I will be able to tell you if I am ready, willing, and wholly able to do a gig unrehearsed. 

I bring true musicianship and good ears to the table. Rehearsal is also possible depending on the gig/pay, etc, and if I feel a connection to your material.
