Range Men


Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Violin, Fiddle, Dobro, Bagpipes.


Time to update my profile, hopefully post-pandemic!

Collaborating with male musicians . Working casually with a drummer singer and a vocalist, adding a guest sax player in fall It's a relaxed gumbo of Western Swing & Rock & Roll, old Country Blues & Ragtime. Looking to collaborate with guitarists, violin, steel, dobro, banjo or any type of experienced male lead players.

My main instrument is bass (upright, fretless and Viola bass), but I also play keyboards, flutes, whistles [I’m also good on the mandola, decent on accordion]

Credits: Rick McBain – drums. percussion, harmonies on most songs Steve 'the Fish' McDonnell - guitar on '57 Chevy'.

(I played in 2018,2019 with the Tilted Kilts + I did a cabaret fill-in gig, so I'm still performing at a high level)

Some of my styles are reflected in the tunes posted here:
‘57 Chevy ‘– Rock
‘Drummer in the Band’ – Pop
‘Route 66’ – Western Swing
‘Cycle of Life’ – New Age Folk (co-written with Murray Bristow)

I sing lead and harmonies & I write music and can do notation.
I play upright bass, fretless and viola bass, keys, flutes +additional instruments.
