Bio

I arrived in Canada in the early 70s, and soon got involved with the music scene in Toronto! I got into different types of rock/blues bands for many years.
But then I got the yearning to do something different?
So for the past 12 years I have been playing solo acoustic fingerstyle guitar, to included folk, rock,blues,and flamenco. I have made several daytime television appearances, and have played small, to larger venues, including The Oakville centre for performing arts, but the highlight of my musical career was performing with vocalist "Anne Russo"at
Roy Thomson Hall, in front of 3,000 people in 2003.
I now play mostly original material,with some cover tunes. I like to use different kinds of guitars, so as to give a more dynamic range to my music. Some of my influences are, Tommy Emmanuel, Leo Kottke, and the great Sabicas! My music has lots of variety,so there is something in there for everone!
