I play banjo, 12 & 6 string guitar (plus oddments - below). I play broadly folk-ish/acoustic . I write songs; can sing a bit. (can't record for toffy though, as most of my audio-files attest . . . ) Would love to be part of an interesting band/duo etc, and develop original material besides covers. Happy to see where it goes, for the joy of music. Would love to find a singer, fiddler, cellist, bellows-ist, percussionist - but all enquiries welcome. Creativity, imagination zest (even the occasional lemon) and openness are sought; skill level is less important.
