Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Recently moved to a farm in Ohio, after many years in Nashville. Mostly a fingerpicker, but I dabble in flatpicking for giggles. Have performed with Pete Hutlinger, Bill Monroe, Thom Bresh, Muriel Anderson, blah, blah. I do some arranging for Mel Bay and a few magazines. I am trying to get involved again, after some medical problems incl. a major brain injury, and a couple of hand surgeries. I've heard my profile is on some Mel Bay site, but I have no idea where, and don't have the patience to look for it. Hope to meet some nice people. I miss the talent pool in Nashvegas, but I love my farm. How do I find out when & where the contests are? Thanks, Jim
