ABOUT

Still working (in quarantine solo) on my Baroque-Folk project - see song sample 'Henry Hudson' + helping a friend with a Celtic/Sea-faring side-project

SWING BAND:
I am prospectively looking, post-Covid to work with some talented male people(guitar, steel guitar, sax, etc). to start a live Western Swing band, with some urban influences .

My main passion in the future is WESTERN SWING UPRIGHT BASS.

I also play keyboards, flute and Viola (Beatle) bass + fretless bass. [I’m also good on the mandola, decent on accordion and potentially deadly on cornet (I was a high school star)

I sing lead and harmonies & I write music and can do notation.

Please contact me at: donmodderman@sasktel.net;

Thank you for your time!

Credits: Rick McBain - congas 'Cycle of Life', Steve McDonnell - guitar, (other credits pending ...

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