Bio

Back when I started out playing, a while ago, I was playing those fine old folk songs beloved of a generation of Peter Paul & Mary fans. Then the Blues came along, grabbed me by the lapels, spun me around slammed me down, sat on my chest and said, "THIS be the music you are goin' to play!" So I started listening to Mississippi John Hurt, Jelly Roll Morton, Rev. Gary Davis, Blind Lemon Jefferson and many others. Copying their licks. Imitating their songs. Then, I realized I needed my own sound. When I write, there are always echoes of those great musicians. Their songs and mine get mixed with stories and commentary. Mainly, I like to bring that fine acoustic experience right out into the audience.
