Been playing guitar since there was air (around 1960 or so), flatpicking bluegrass and playing clawhammer banjo since the mid-70's, songwriting since the late 90's. A frequent staff instructor at the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop, as well as teaching out of our humble abode. A winner at the Kerrville New Folk songwriting contest in Kerrville, Texas and some other pretty cool stuff. Banjo is how I'm making my second million dollars - the first million is already gone. I am currently part of a duo with my wife, Julianna Waters, calling ourselves Heart & Hammer. Look us up, fan us, give a like, and enjoy the music.
