I sing and play old-time, country, and bluegrass on fiddle and guitar, solo or with a band (to fit your needs and budget). I have a roster of the finest acoustic musicians in the twin cities who I can call on to join me.
People seem to enjoy my playing whether they've heard this music before or not. I've played bluegrass, old-time, country, jazz, western swing, irish, blues, country rock, etc.
Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions!

What to Expect
My group and I can play a wide variety of traditional and popular music including old-time songs and tunes, bluegrass, country, folk, etc. We can act as featured entertainment or background music. We can also lead square dancing to entertain a crowd, which we frequently do at wedding receptions. You will see a 2-4 person group playing fiddle tunes, singing songs, and having a good time. You can stick us in a corner or put us on a stage. We are happy to play without amplification when the event is small enough. We can provide our own sound system when needed.
I am a folk musician living in Minneapolis. I have played many concerts, parties, and square dances over the years, and I would be happy to bring my music to your event. I have a group of local players that I draw upon as needed given the specifics of each gig. I am best known for playing the fiddle, but I play many other instruments as needed. My music is mostly acoustic, but I do have a PA system that I can bring out if it is called for. I can offer a variety of music including old-time, bluegrass, country, western swing, etc.
