My songs, and general news

     As stated elsewhere on this site, I write songs.  Now I have begun to write more.  One is copyrighted, and as soon as I get the others transcribed, I will copyright and eventually record and release them on the internet.   Updates will be provided as they occur.

I was interested in American folk music from an early age. My interests expanded as my horizons expanded, and I now like several different folk musics and several music genres. The banjo was my first instrument, and the love of my life. I am now writing my own songs. Currently, I am acquiring more recordings from old Bluegrass bands. My biggest fault is failing to practice or learn my own songs!
