What to Expect
A mellow balladeer who does a lot of finger picking.
Started playing in 1964 so that means I have been at it 51 years. Started out as rocker playing Beatles tunes. Still do a finger picking cover of Dear Prudence as well as Here Comes the Sun and Two of Us. These days I like a nice mellow environment for my nice mellow music. I am from the same town in West Virginia (Glen Dale) as country star Brad Paisley. I lived on 7th Street and he lived on 8th street. Never met him though as I am bit older than Brad. I don't play country and western however. My big influences were the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Donovan and Gordon Lightfoot.
Mellow Yellow, Knockin' on Heaven's Door, Sunshine Superman, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, Spill the Wine, Moon Dance, I Used to Be a KIng, Lucky Man, Make Me a Pallet on Your Floor, If You Could Read My Mind, Tambourine Man, Stormy Monday, Dust in the Wind, Vincent, Tears in Heaven, Mother Nature's Son, If You're Going to San Francisco and many others.
