I have always liked the banjo growing up as a kid. My father worked for a "Country and Western" radio station with his own program. That's what they called the music back then. I grew up with classic country music at my house and heard some great sounds. Then radio stations would play both country and bluegrass. I have many favorite artist of all kinds of music. The banjo of Earl Scruggs always caught my ear and I would listen to every note of his when I would hear him . I got my first banjo and Earl's instruction book for my birthday in 1976. It was The Earl Scruggs Revue that set me picking. I consider them my biggest influence and teachers. I learned so much from Earl. His many styles of music through the years and it continues to this day with me. I have been in some fine bands. Have done radio, television, appeared at the Renfro Valley Barn Dance, Texas Troubador Theatre and many other festivals around the country. I competed eight times and won the Iowa state banjo championship those eight years. I am also a endorser for Recording King Banjos which I am real excited about. They are very fine instruments and I highly recommend them.
