ABOUT

Mid 50's so not looking for pop stardom. Look away now if you are a covers band or want to be in one :-)
I play Folk / acoustic / country mostly on Guitar, 5 string banjo. I also play tunes on tenor banjo, Irish bouzouki and Dobro, and enjoy playing with other instrumentalists on tunes or songs. Moved from Cornwall 10 months ago and haven't managed to hook up with other musicians yet. Really want a few others to get together, play some tunes and have fun learning from each other and see if we can make a nice sound.
