Songwriter, guitarist, painter, fiddler, slide player, eco-village member and believer in all

things possible. Named 2016 Folk Alliance International Artist-in- Resident, he’s played

with Suzanne Vega, Dar Williams, David Francey, John McCutcheon, John Gorka, Judy

Collins and 100’s more. His songs are cinematic and are being made into award winning



He’ll  surprise you and awaken the cynics.  He’s plumbing for lyrical gold like a social

archeologist.  His songs are universal, his rhythm infectious and in concert, he is funny

as hell one moment and transcendent the next.


Mystical, and humorous roads, twisting through vivid cinematography.

Like short 4:00 films. Visual, artful and human. Brooklyn in July, Oklahoma towns,

rattlesnake tails, turbary thieves, Galway heather, meter maids and drunk roosters. At

the end of the night, you’ll leave inspired.  “The Long Note” is a phrase in Irish culture.

“The Long Note” is that place of resonance and transcendence where the music, the

voices, the instruments, and the community ALL come together and unite.


Whether he’s picking his 48 Gibson, weaving through lap slide songs or looping his

fiddle, he will draw you in.  It happens every time.  Watch a YouTube video. It’s good,

but it’s not the same. You gotta come to a show.  With unwavering courage to be

himself, he is literate, poignant and funny as hell.
