I’m basically a traditional Virginia Piedmont songster, when it comes down to it: about a third of my active repertory is old pre-war country blues, the rest are “folksongs”: country, old-time, rockabilly, gospel, and contemporary stuff, plus lots of fingerstyle instrumentals on six- and twelve-string Gibson guitars, and bottleneck metal-bodied Dobro. I’ve been playing for 40 years or so, and have played in hundreds of places you’ve never heard of, most likely, up and down the East Coast from New Haven to north Georgia, from the Outer Banks to the Delta. Bars, colleges, prep schools, public schools, coffeehouses, country stores, historical societies, festivals, art museums, pig pickin’s, libraries, fire hall/community centers, senior centers, Sunday School classes, concert halls, charities, farmer’s markets, private parties, that sort of thing. Some of these gigs over the years have been supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, ultimately, and by matching funds on the regional, state, or local level. Long live public support of the arts!
