Occupation: Web publisher (Autism Hangout dotcom), writer, teacher and now, documentarian! Yee-ha!
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.
I play "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: www.eelpoutstringers.com
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).

Here's a cut from our upcoming Gospel CD. There is NO music more fun to perform than Gospel. Here's an example. Hope you feel the joy!
on “Singleton Street Gospel - Old Hymn Medley”
