More About Me

I have been playing 5-string banjo since around 1961, when I was in high school. I started with folk style and clawhammer and then discovered Earl Scruggs and, later, Bill Keith. I have been teaching bluegrass banjo, Scruggs and melodic style, since 1963, at places such as Main Music (Skokie, IL), Bill Lewis Music (Vancouver, BC), Old Town Strings (Victoria, BC), the BC Bluegrass Workshop (Sorrento, BC), and the Northern Lights Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Workshop (Ness Creek, SK). I emphasize playing lead and the subtleties of backup, and I also like to explore theory. My playing and teaching are based on what I learned as a member of numerous bluegrass bands in Montreal, Vancouver, Victoria, and Saskatoon.
