About Me

Welcome!

I'm a multi-instrumentalist, folk musician, and music teacher located in upstate South Carolina. I'll attempt to play anything with strings and have a love of Appalachian music traditions. Here you'll find information about my music, lessons, and who/where/when I'm playing in the near future. If you see anything you're interested in, drop me a line. I'm always happy to talk music.

Currently you can catch me playing bass with The Wild Pines and The New Time Travelers.

The Arts Center of Clemson and the Clemson Fire Department are teaming up for this fundraiser. The Arts Center is raising money for a clay studio kiln and the fire department is raising money for the Jeff Chavis House at the JMS Burn Center in Augusta which is the facility where Clemson burn patients are treated.

Tickets are $20 online and $25 at the door. Each ticket includes a handmade bowl created by our talented Clay Studio artists and one alcoholic drink. There will be plenty of bowl food, sides and desserts including chili from the Clemson's Wendy's. Additional alcoholic beverages will be available along with free non-alcoholic beverages.

with The Wild Pines at Fireforge Brewery

Fireforge Brewery, 311 E Washington St, Greenville, SC

Let's welcome The Wild Pines to the taproom Friday February 7th from 7:00-9:00 P.M. The Wild Pines will take us on a warm, folksy journey filled with a chorus of strings and soul-shining vocal harmonies. As a band of songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, there is a delightful trade of instruments and song sharing with a mix of original and cover songs rooted in folk, blues and bluegrass.
