Mainly into folk/blues/soft rock styles.  Singer/songwriter stuff, generally. Prefer 'real' instruments and traditional styles.

I play (or attempt to play) acoustic/electric guitars, acoustic/electric bass, acoustic baritone guitar, bouzouki, mandolin, autoharp, penny whistles, harmonica, lap-steel and beginner sitar. Vocals but have a very limited range. Do all of my recording using Reaper.

Been writing and composing now for a few years doing a lot of collabs. Unfortunately a couple of my recent partners in music have moved on up to that great ole stage in the sky so I'm finding myself a bit short on inspiration.

Plenty of stuff at my web page for anyone to check out including a link to YouTube channel.
