Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I'm 30-something years old and I'm married with 1 beautiful wife, 2 beautiful daughters, and 3 spoiled dogs. I've been playing guitar for almost 20 years. I've listened to bluegrass-ish music most of my life, but I just started flatpicking fairly recently. I took lessons from the "very underrated flatpicker" (quoting Tony Rice) Glenn Tolbert for about 6 months. I live in Woodstock, Alabama, and until recently, I worked at the Mercedes-Benz factory in Vance, Alabama to pay the bills.
Hi Marty, Good to hear from you. We don't have anything booked right now for Birmingham or AL. We rarely play down that way for some reason. Our schedule is online at http://bluehighwayband.com/Pages/schedule.htm. Take care, Tim

"My gear is much better than my skill - for straight flatpickin', I play a Martin D-18 Authentic 1937. My go-to guitar for just about everything else (and it flatpicks just fine, thank you) is my Huss & Dalton D-RH with a Red Spruce top.…"
"Hey Craig. Thanks for the kind comment. The credit for this version should really go To Steve Kaufman who's arrangement it is. Good luck with your bluegrass studies, it's wonderful music and great fun to play. I look forward to…"
"Thanks Mike. I have to prove to myself that I can play the material as written but once I've done that I start to allow myself some leeway to have fun and drop in my own bits. There's not too much space to do that in SK's version of…"
