ABOUT

I enjoy playing acoustic folk style music with a few alternatives thrown in the mix. I also enjoy harmony/A-cappella singing, specifically sea shanties and seafaring music (Even before it was cool in 2021). I started a shanty band in early 2018 called Bilgewater and we played a few fun shows a year. For the moment that project is on the shelf and I’ve been playing regularly in a duo, sometimes trio including fiddle, another guitar player or mandolin and having lot of fun. Happy to play music with like-minded folk either for fun or towards a bigger project! Search Bilgewater shanty band on Facebook to say hello
