I've been playing Irish fiddle and guitar since around 1990, and have been teaching guitar since then and fiddle for the last 20 years or so. I taught on staff at the Augusta Folk Heritage workshop at Davis and Elkins College for 10 years.
I've traveled and played in Ireland quite a bit. I love teaching Irish repertoire, style, ornaments and variation on the fiddle and guitar as well as guitar accompaniment in DADGAD tuning, though I'm fully comfortable in standard tuning as well.
I've worked with kids, adults, beginners, accomplished violinists who are moving over to the fiddle, and fiddle players who want to open up to some new approaches.
I lived in Washington DC for many years leading sessions and playing for Ceilis and contra dances. I have been living in Wisconsin for the last 10 years.
