Chuck (nicknamed "chainsaw" because of his aggressive playing style) was born and raised in Southern California. His earliest recollections of bluegrass music stem from listening to WSM and the Grand Ol’ Opry back in the 50’s when his family lived in Kansas. Chuck is a multi-instrumentalist who started playing guitar in the 60’s, but is currently most comfortable playing the 5 string banjo. He is a former president of the Oregon Bluegrass Association. He has played with a plethora of regional bluegrass musicians. From 1999 through 2004, Chuck was a radio DJ for KRVM. There he programmed, and broadcast three hours of bluegrass music on the "Miles of Bluegrass" show every Monday night. Chuck’s traditional bluegrass music roots keep anybody that he's playing with steeped in a traditional sound. When he’s not performing, he teaches guitar, mandolin, and 5 string banjo at the John G. Shedd Institute for the Arts in Eugene, OR. Twelve years ago, Chuck founded the Tuesday night bluegrass jam at Sam Bond's Garage in Eugene. You can see him there, picking away on his five string, most Tuesday nights.
