I write songs... lots of them... but when I'm not working on that (which is my "life work") I'm restoring various fretted instruments c.1800 to c.1940. I operate and sell out of our family's country store in Vermont and have just decided on a business name: Antebellum Instruments, as I'm mostly repairing "pre-war" instruments! I know, a bad joke! I can't help it.
