During the last 30 yrs or so I have been very very busy performing and making long playing record albums with many beautiful musicians. Short experimental movies,still photography, origami and as of late, some kind of crazy brush painting printer art. And if that isn't enough I have been on the road with COWBOY JUNKIES for the last 20 years. Ever since we made that TRINITY SESSION record. It's all here.

LESSONS NOW AVAILABLE

I am pleased to offer lessons on three of my favorite instruments, mandolin, harmonica and bass. Okay I don't have a favorite, I love em all but I would be more than happy to help anyone out who wants to learn to love making music as much as I do. In person is best of course (you would need to be in the Guelph, Canada area) but now through the magic of the internet lessons are available by skype. check it out here lessons

please check out this video I helped make for a very dear friend of mine who is living with the hell of Parkinsons Disease. Sue Richards is heroically trying to stay in her home without any government assistance. Apparently there isn't any even in the so called benevolent Canadian social system. Go here to help Sue and for more info. Please pass this around.
