Have you ever performed music in front of an audience (not counting Karaoke or social jams)?

I've played in orchestras and chamber groups but the only folk music I've played before an audience was old time fiddle for dance bands and its been a number of years. I just returned to playing in late December and am making good progress.

Do you play or are you learning a musical instrument? If so, which?

I play violin (fiddle), mandolin, played classical piano and viola for many years. I also do a little flatpicking on guitar.

Who's your #1 favorite folk or folk-rock performer? Or, who are some of your favorites?

I couldn't settle on just one. Whose ever on stage this week at the Birchmere when I'm there, most likely.

What are some of your favorite folk or folk-rock songs?

That can change, but some of my all time favorites "Church Street Blues" and "Slow Train through Georgia" (Norman Blake); "1952 Vincent Black Lightning" (Richard Thompson); assorted Townes Van Zandt songs, Dave Alvin, Steve Earle - I could go on.

Tell us anything else about yourself you'd care to tell. Answering all these questions is optional, but we're interested.
