I play fiddle, mandolin, mandola, guitar, tenor guitar and tenor banjo. I am proud to say that I have progressed to the point I no longer scare the cat...although, at 15, he may have simply gone deaf. I can sing a bit, keep decent rhythm, play mostly in tune and observe good jam etiquette.
I enjoy playing old timey music, bluegrass, cajun, folk, western swing, celtic, classic rock - pretty much anything if I can figure out how to play it.

I started playing fiddle and mandolin about 8 years ago (I was 51). Never too late! I have been practicing guitar for about a year, mostly playing chords and rhythm to accompany my singing. It is time to get out and play with others.
Welcoming, friendly, talented musicians that enjoy making music.
