What instrument do you play?

The accordion is a fantastic instrument and has the ability to do a lot, musically. It can be a very dominant voice in a group setting so I have been trying to blend in. Just as guitar pickers have various styles, I call mine a "Prairie" style of playing. Since pianos and organs had a hard time surviving the journey, various kinds of accordions filled the gap for music at church or social gatherings in the mountains, bayous, and prairies of America as it was being settled. I try to play with that tradition in mind.

What kind of music do you play?

I specialize in Americana music and have been focusing on top 100 tunes from the last 50 years going forward. I am also listening to a lot of blues, lately, and hope to move more in that direction and to get back to writing my own tunes.


I play the accordion,and write songs. I would like to start a band, a trio or a duo with other musicians who play instruments other than the accordion.
