About Me


I'm a multi-instrumentalist, folk musician, and music teacher located in Columbia, 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.

From time to time I provide music for private events, farmer's markets, fundraisers, etc. Contact me for more information about booking.

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.

I offer guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, and upright bass lessons to students of all ages, in person in the Columbia, SC area and also online via Zoom/Skype. I tend to focus on traditional Appalachian music, but can help students get started and progress in any style. contact me for more information, or to schedule a lesson.

For in person lessons, I'm currently teaching out of Bill's Music Shop & Picking Parlor in West Columbia.
