George Burns once said "I love to sing, and I love to drink scotch. Most people would rather hear me drink scotch."

I'm more of a beer drinker, but other than that most people would probably be comfortable comparing me to George Burns.

Haven't had enough? Well here...take some more:

These recordings are not professionally done, but you'll probably realize that once you start listening. There is no over-dubbing, no auto-tune, and no monkeying around to hide any mistakes. All of the cuts below were recorded on a simple 2 track machine. The first 5 were done in a single take, with just me, my guitar, and my normal sound system (including a little vocal harmony machine). These are true representations of my 'live' sound.

There's a few truly live recordings a little further down the page.

If you like what you hear, tell somebody....I'm looking for places to play. If you don't like what you hear, tell me. There's a contact link a little further down the page.

Thanks for listening.

A Great Time Was Had By All!!!
Friday June 20, 7:00pm
Miami University, Downtown Hamilton

They say there's nothing to do in Hamilton on Friday nights...but on this Friday night they were wrong! A bunch of us had a great time kicking off Miami's new Friday Night Music series.

Like always, it was hard to pigeon-hole me into a music category. Sometimes I was folky. Sometimes I was country. Sometimes I was comical. Sometimes I was rowdy. Sometimes I do something that tears at your heartstrings. Sometimes I let the audience take over and sing the songs themselve. All I can say is whether the song was something brand new or the song was something decades old, it all come out sounding like me.

One thing's for certain...I think everyone, including me, had a good time. Thanks to John Vaughn and Miami University Downtown Hamilton for hosting.

We caught a few of the songs on cell phone video. Click the links below to watch on YouTube:

Saturday September 28th...
11th Annual Pyramid Hill Art Fair
Had the honor of being both the first and last musical act on the first day of the Art Fair.
The weather was beautiful, the event was well-attended, and the lovely park was a wonderful place to hold such an event.

For the first show at noon, I was joined on mandolin by Donnie Hampton of the Kentucky 31 Bluegrass Band.

We did an hour-long set that was more country-oriented, with a few oldies thrown in for good measure.
To top out Saturday's festivities, I was also given the honor of being the closing act from 5:00 until the fair was over at 6:00.

I was joined onstage this time by Chico Converse of the Cincinati band Lagniappe.

Chico brought his gypsy fiddle and we played a set of mostly oldies hits(which to me means 50s and 60s).

Audiences at both shows seemed to have a good time, which is exactly what we were trying to make sure happened :-)
Click this link to view some of the audience-taken video of the shows.

Thanks to Harry Wilks, Leslie Jones, and Pyramid Hill for letting us be a part of their big weekend.
We hope to see you all again soon

It was January. It was cold. I was told I should take an Aquacize class to stay in shape. After a class or two, inspiration set in. Follow the link to listen to the song that came out.
