Favorite Bands/Musicians:
Earl, Don, Ralph, JD, Jim Reed, Jim Mills. I like the "old stuff" and older styles. I admire many of today's younger "progressive" artists, most notably Rhiannon Giddens, but I have always enjoyed collecting records from the 1920s through to the early 1960s. That fifty year period of American music is my favorite: Bluegrass, Old Time, Blues, Hokum, Rags, Swing, Hillbilly, Country, & Rockabilly. That's for me!

Thanks for your kind compliment! "Swamp Funk" (not punk) is a style of dance music from the 50s 60s & 70s from Southern Louisianna, played by both blacks and whites who share the old Canjun (French Acadian) life style in the Atchafalya River Basin area. I had the pleasure of living near there, in New Orleans, and playing in and around that area for about 7 years. A wonderful part of the United States and wonderful people with a wonderful and rich culture.
