I have been making music since the late 1970s, mostly on mandolin and guitar. I play old-time, Cajun, Creole, swamp pop and Americana/bluegrass.
I am currently a member of $5 Short, Gumbo Limbo Cajun Band, The Gadabouts, The Yazoo Kickstarts, Wild Bill’s Traveling Circus and the Rochelle Ramblers.
Some examples of my original music appear below – I hope you enjoy them!
