I live in Tacoma, Washington. i have been playing acoustic and string band music since 1979. . I started out primarily as a blue grass guitarist, got interested in the banjo and immediately fell in love with old-timey banjo. i dropped out of playing for a few years but began again in 2005 and have been playing consistently since. Picked up the mandolin about 8 years ago which was inspired by first play the banjo uke. i have played at several square and contra dances.
I have listened to Celtic music forever but I only dabbled in playing Irish music, primarily with DADGAD guitar. Taken some Irish and Scottish classes which focused upon the mandolin. I recently bought an octave mandolin and find myself very motivated to immerse myself in mastering Celtic backup.
