Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Since about 1983 have played bass guitar and guitar in many bands and styles from punk rock to avant guarde jazz/rock. Interest in Old Time and Bluegrass took over in late 1990's. Mostly just an in-home picker these days.

I play some mandolin too. I would love to find a fiddle player to back up. ...or open back banjo, or mando.
