Retired epidemiologist living in the boonies near Waterloo, Michigan. My wonderful wife is a retired reference librarian and an accomplished player of concertina, accordion, piano and harp.

I started playing ITM on guitar (finger-style), but was drawn towards playing melody in sessions, where such guitar playing doesn’t work very well, so learned how to play tenor banjo and mandolin, and, of course, continue working on both.

We don’t have TV or even very good Internet, so we have a lot of time for playing, and that we do!

Happy playing to you.


Here’s a tune I wrote recently. Any feedback would be welcome:
