Roots and Culture


Thanks for looking me up!

I’m proud to announce that after all these years of playing other peoples music, I’ve finally released a recording of my very own, a collection entitled “Southern Discomfort.”

Order yourself a copy today!

I’m a musician living and working in New Orleans. You can find me around town playing with local guitar hero Chip Wilson. Or maybe even playing string bass or tuba with the New Orleans Rag Weeds. Or tenor banjo or whatever with just about anyone who will hire me.

Some of you will remember me as partner to Danny Barnes in the the pioneering Weirdo-Americana act Bad Livers, or maybe as Santiago Jimenez, Jr.’s bassist and producer. There’s probably quite a few who searched for the guy who teaches and performs klezmer music around the world, or toured with Boban Markovic Orkestar and Frank London’s Klezmer Brass All Stars, and the Other Europeans Project.

I also have the honor of being the Founding Director of the Folk Alliance International’s annual Winter Music Camp that runs in conjunction with the Folk Alliance Conference in KC MO, each February.

Gosh. There’s been so much. I’m sure I left a lot out.

Drop me an Email and say “Howdy!”

Or follow me on Twitter if that’s your thing, or Instagram, or even Facebook.
