Well Versed/Tasteful banjo player and acoustic guitarist
My main forte is banjo which I have played at prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, The Grand Ole Opry and The Ryman Auditorium. In addition to banjo I am a professional acoustic guitarist, highly skilled in flatpicking and jazz guitar. I can add banjo/mandolin/acoustic guitar to singer-songwriter, bluegrass, jazz and popular albums. I also love creating arrangements and working with other musicians. My Goal is to make you sound better; tasteful, in tune and professional.
