The vibrations of wood and string,
the shaped breath and wind
are the musician's creative muses.
Vocals, pianos, guitars, mandolins, didjeridoo's, drums, dulcimers--I find bits of my soul in each and grow as I learn about each connection.
And--I find their echoes in the souls of others as you listen.
I'm a traveling musician,
a commissioned composer,
a music educator,
recording producer and publisher.
I weave mountain and hammered dulcimers and guitar
with a variety of unusual instruments
to create thought-provoking,
smile-inducing, toe-tapping acoustic experiences.
I have sung and composed for religious communities,
union halls, picket lines,
inter-faith retreats, mountain-top youth camps,
as well as the more familiar venues: festivals, clubs,
coffeehouses, house concerts, bookstores,
charity benefits and showcase concerts.
I Celebrate Life with music, come celebrate with me!
