- PIcked up my first guitar at 12... still haven't figured out how to put it down, five full decades later!!
I've played graffitti rock, disco (it was the 80's), both Country AND Western, folk (25 yrs of it) and Elvis.. In between, I managed to spend a quarter-century as an Irish folk Minstrel in a Celtic folk band that worked up and down the Wild Wet West Coast.
Now semi-retired, & trying to fix up my composing skills between twangs, I've also managed to learn a little conducting (a new hobby) and have been musical director for some local stage productions.
