Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I've been playing music for a long time. First classical piano, then folk guitar, then bluegrass banjo, then flatpicking guitar, and along in there I learned some dobro and a bit of very basic (but very fun) acoustic bass. I don't play piano anymore but I'm glad I learned it first, it gave me a great musical foundation. Especially the counting part.

Mostly I play bluegrass, traditional Irish, and folk/blues/singer-songwriter kind of stuff. It's a dream of mine to play in a country rock band.

Oh, and I teach a bunch, when I have time. Private lessons, as well as at music camps. And, I write a regular column for Flatpicking Guitar Magazine. If you don't subscribe, you should!

Hi Kathy, I had just started working out an arrangement of "Freight Train" when I got my copy of FGM the other day. Thanks for the help. I hope to meet you at Kamp in a few weeks.

I wish, I would love to get together with you and pick some songs. Unfortunately, Kamp is a week after our annual family vacation to Table Rock Lake.

Hi Kathy,
Never met you before, but I love your articles in FGM (specially when it's about x-picking), and I always read your post on fp-list. I hope I will meet you somewhere and pick with you. Are you going to Winfield ? If not, no problem, you come in Paris France !!!
Thanx to be my friend.
Philippe.
PS : I'm a fan of Pottier too.

Kathy,
Thanks for accepting, and the encouraging words. The hearts willing but the ability is lacking.
Kathy's there's nothing better than sitting down with my guitar on a Sunday afternoon to practice, realizing my fingertips are really beginning to hurt, looking at the clock and seeing that 4 or 5 hours have passed.
I've enjoyed your instruction in FGM...that instruction has been the reason for some of those 5 hour sessions.
Hope you enjoy your time in east tennesse when you come to visit and be apart of Steve's Kamp.
Make today a special day!!
Charlie

ah yes, Mary Gibbons, the guitar player with Laurie Lewis ; they have done a really great show near Paris (Villejuif), I was there and I've missed you, next time.
It was in 2000 ? ok. The same year we also had Kathy Kallick (the 1st of april, my last daughter was born that day, I'm sure :^)). So, 2000 was a great year for the west coast bg gals in Paris :^) !!! we love that bg here.
Châteauroux ?!? it's near the middle of no-where, are you sure they use euros ? :^)) just kidding, I've family there. uhm...nobody fom Châteauroux around ? :^))
I don't know a luthier in Provence, but there are very interesting luthier in France.
oh yes, the rate..., I understand, good for me to come in US where I hope to meet you in "real".
Philippe.
