I am a musician based in the Northern Shenandoah Valley town of Strasburg, Virginia. I play guitar and mandolin, sing lead and harmony vocals, and I have played with a number of bands.
From 2006 through 2010, I was a member of Strasburg, Virginia's Five of a Kind. Prior to that, from 2000 to 2005, I was a member of SW Florida's Swinging Bridge band. Over the years some other bands I have been with were DC area's "New River Express", "Winterwood" and "Outer Banks".


I am currently the Program Director on, an internet based station broadcast through the Live365 on-line network. I am also host of my own "Fosters Corner" program on the station.
I work from my home in Strasburg, VA.


Since 1995, I have been a contributing writer for Bluegrass Unlimited magazine. I have written over 660 albums reviews, full articles, and a few obituaries.
