  • New Cut Road String Band website, tenor guitar, and vocals

I started playing banjo uke with the Boston old time band The Chicken Chokers in 1989. On through the years with old time music: The Primitive Characters, Up South, Long John and the Tights, and now New Cut Road. Then there were the other genres: psychobilly with Twang, blues with The Cayuga Blue Notes, creole with the Zydeco Trail Riders, and Finnish Tex-Mex with TOiVO. I am a rhythm player on uke, tenor guitar, regular guitar, and electric bass, and have been reported to sing “like an air raid siren”. See my recorded works at www.discogs.org
