Music for Thems That Knows

I am a musician based in the Northern Shenandoah Valley town of Strasburg, Virginia. I play guitar and mandolin, sing lead and harmony vocals. Currently I am a co-host of the Sunday Open Mic sessions at the Box Office Brewery in Strasburg. I also play occasionally with local musician Don Crigler, and, I have recently become a member of the new Valley trio, Massandoah, with Kevin Whalen and Paul Tangren.

From 2006 through 2010, I was a member of Strasburg, Virginia's Five of a Kind Bluegrass band. Prior to that, from 2000 to 2005, I was a member of SW Florida's Swinging Bridge Bluegrass band. Over the years some other Bluegrass bands I have been with were DC area's "New River Express", "Winterwood" and "Outer Banks".
