I've been playing music most all of my life. Started frailing on the banjo around age 10, banged on a piano for a while, then got a guitar. Now I mostly play old-time fiddle tunes, with a few different groups and solo. My main instrument is fiddle, but also play banjo, guitar, mandolin, autoharp—oh yeah and dulcimer.
