About
I've been making my living in the music business for 45 years. I'm a 2x Grand North American Fiddle Champion and was inducted into the North American Fiddler's Hall of Fame in 2011.
I've composed near 800 tunes and many have become standard repertoire with fiddlers in North America & Europe. Every tune has a story so my concerts always have the element of story telling and instrumental music. I grew up with 'fiddle music' in our house because my father was a fiddler. I started when I was 8 years old. I live in St. Paul but really I feel most at home, when I'm performing on a stage, even after all these years.

What this Artist plays most of the time
Genre: InstrumentalCeltic
Home base: St. Paul Alberta
Appeals most (but not limited) to: When people think 'fiddle', I'm sure they think old people music. Yes, the seniors love fiddle music but I play so many styles of music and with the stories, I can keep all people entertained.

I live in St. Paul AB so I can pretty much be anywhere in Alberta within 1 day. My summers are filled playing festivals and teaching workshops around North America and I do a 2-3 weeks tour in the spring and fall, in different parts of North America. I definitely want to stay closer to home and tour more in Alberta.
