Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I'm a professional guitarist. I live in near Buffalo NY. As a bandleader I play Bluegrass, Country, Blues, R&R, R&B. As session player I play those and other styles both on acoustic and electric guitars. I also play solo gigs featuring Piedmont, and Delta style blues guitar. My latest recording is a collection of Flatpicking tunes with 13 year old Ben Doerfel called "Generation Gap". For the last two years I've toured with the Broadway show Ring of Fire, the music of Johnny Cash as lead guitarist. Currently I'm home playing dates with my Bluegrass band Mountain Run and my electric band The Lo Blu Flame.
