Feeling a bit camera shy


My influences are too many to list! Starting in the Jefferson Street Jug Band in 68, I studied old timey music, bluegrass, then worked with John Fahey, then started many bands that ranged from The Band kind of sound to big driving blues bands. Now the music is a distallation of all of that. My goal is to present songs that are thoughtful, fun, deepening, and challenging... and music that can lift the listener out of their chairs and ordinary mind.

With the advent of the looper and 'replugging', whole new vistas are available and I'm so excited to be able to jam on top of myself... as Keller Williams does. This adds to the set an element that I felt wasn't there before when I was a 'singer songwriter.'

I've auditioned to play in the Grateful Dead (keyboards), taught at Wavy Gravy's Camp Winnarainbow, my jug band was invited to play at the original Woodstock.
