I have been singing music since I was about 8. I started playing and singing in churches every week from 1974 to 2004. I took a rest at that time and then discovered Americana which this site does not know exists. I also write, record, post, and perform folk songs. I usually draw around 50 people for a gig and it seems that everyone enjoys the music. I am critically acclaimed in Nashville, have five #1 hits on the radio and 3 best folk song awards.
I perform now at weddings, church services, concerts, festivals and fundraisers. I perform original music and covers by many folk/Americana musicians like Dave Van Ronk, John Prine, Stephen Foster, Leonard Cohen, and many songs where we don't know the artists.. I play and sing folk songs dating back to the early 1700s in many countries and I am searching for music prior to that from relatives who share my heritage as a descendant of the Mayflower Pilgrims.
