Vancouver Island Music Festival
NEW CD IN THE NEW YEAR! "SLIDING DELTA" has been out, courtesy of Borealis Records, since January 20, 2015. A collection of the 1920s-1930s rural blues that inspired me to start playing in my youth- Mississippi John Hurt, Fred McDowell, Skip James, Memphis Minnie, Charley Patton, Blind Willie McTell, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Barbecue Bob... You can stream a few of these songs right now on the Music page.
Blues, Old Time, Cajun, Country, Soul and Swing. Roots music is the music I play on guitars, banjos, fiddle, mandolin and harmonica. It is also the music I sing. A wide repertoire of all variety of songs. Songs that are traditional, original and interpreted.
For over thirty years now, I have studied, composed, and recorded many kinds of roots music, and performed on many continents.
If you, like me, are nourished and inspired by this kind of music, I invite you to explore my site. With any luck, I'll be playing somewhere near your town sometime soon. If not, I have many recordings to choose from, and you can listen to some of them here. (You can click below, and for more, check out the Music page).
