[Teaching] [Jamming] [Socializing] [Helping]

Occupation: Web publisher (Autism Hangout dotcom), writer, teacher and now, documentarian! Yee-ha!

Gender: Male

Age: 64

My Instruments:
Right now I play 2 Chuck Lee Marble Falls, both with Bill Rickard tubaphone tone rings. I love sampling other banjos, but have settled on Chuck's for their consistent performance (legendary neck sensitivity) and sound.

For 10 years I played "Old Time Gospel and Bluegrass" with a MPLS-based group called Singleton Street. We've recorded two CDs: "Wingin' It", our Gospel music and "Almost Live" our first CD.

My old-timey group is the Eelpout Stringers. These guys are great fun! Check out some of our music on my MP3 page. Other cuts also found at:

Favorite Bands/Musicians:
Got LOTs of influences. From Unca Dave Macon and Stringbean right up to several of today's performers (i.e. Dwight Diller, Mac Benford, Mark Schatz and Joe Newberry). My favorite of all time though, is "Old Wide Load"... Tommy Thompson of the Red Clay Ramblers. And someone here on the hangout that's incredible is frailblazer (Ric Hollander).

If I can't sing a tenor, can I still get in?  Will the angels hold their ears when I go to pick an' grin?  If I get in line, brother, and I right all my wrongs, will the devil be the only one to listen to my song?  

Great job!

Absolutely the best rendition of this I've ever heard, and that's sayin' a lot.  Very creative and ORIGINAL. The spontaneity is truly wonderful. Do you have this on a CD?

Great rendition of one of my favorite gospel songs. Thank you for the inspiration.
