At age 11 I began playing guitar and learning Beatle songs. This love of folk and rock morphed into a broader study of Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Jean Ritchie and a trove of other 60s and 70s musicians.
But work and life as a civil engineer and Navy officer got in the way, and my musical growth hit stasis til I retired for good in 2010. After some years playing at the senior center I helped form 4 Man String Band. But a simpler life beckoned me to join Charles and Phyl to birth Crawlspace. Now, thanks to mentoring from John McCutcheon and Charles Absher I am composing new material.
