I play a lot of harmonica and perform on a professional level regularly.
My strength is playing on all kinds of folk songs, some Celtic/traditional tunes, and I play a lot of blues and some jazz-blues.
I also love to teach and coach beginners and am myself always the student.
I play with Gallowglass Irish Band, The Tango Cowboys, Robert Blake, Petunia (& The Vipers), and many others. I organize and perform blues gigs with regional guitar great Hambone Wilson.
Most recent recording job was with a wonderful local original song bluegrass group 'Crooked Constellation', and we just performed those numbers at the 2019 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 with or without rehearsal, or record upon working on your tracks.
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.
