I am a professional bluegrass banjo player and teacher. I grew up listening to Scruggs, Crowe, Stanley, & Hartford; to name only a few. I went through a big Bela Fleck phase; I will again. I play more Scruggsy stuff these days, but have melodic chops for fiddle tunes. I've recorded extensively and toured all over Canada and the U.S. I play banjo with "The Foggy Hogtown Boys". Traditional stuff, mostly. I also play every Wednesday night in Toronto at The Silver Dollar Room on Spadina Avenue with a group called "Crazy Strings". I used to play with a group called Heartbreak Hill. I have learned a lot over the years and always enjoy learning more. I remember how it feels to struggle through the initial learning process!
