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 Gumbo Limbo Cajun Band, The Gadabouts, The Yazoo Kickstarts and the Rochelle Ramblers.

Some examples of my music appear below – I hope you enjoy them!
