I (Lawrence "Doc" Probes) was born and raised in Ft. Worth, Texas. I am married to Donna Wilson Probes, and we live in Traverse City, Michigan. Our family band is "Cherry Blossom Ramblers," and when they are in town the band includes our daughters, Kelly & Jessica Shugart. Jim Hawley, Donna & I formed "Peter, Paul & Mary Remembered" in early 2010 as a tribute to the famous folk group. I am active in the Celtic and Irish Traditional Music community, playing anglo concertina, mandolin, bouzouki and whistle at a weekly TC Celtic session in downtown Traverse City. I have a 4-person ITM band "Kerfunken." I am a student of acclaimed Irish concertina master, Noel Hill, and I teach his method. A key mission for me is to keep LIVE MUSIC alive and well, promote harmony, amity and a sense of community among musicians, and foster interest in traditional music among young musicians.
