I’m often asked, “What’s your main instrument?” The answer has always been, it depends on the style of music.
I play fiddle mostly, but for years I played mainly mandolin, before that guitar both acoustic and electric. In my early days of playing in a band and studying theory I played electric bass. I still play and teach all of them including tenor banjo and ukulele.
Here is a recording of me playing fiddle, mandolin and guitar on my tune First of the Year.
I perform solo and two bands:
While Rome Burns – A duo with multi-instrumentalist Wyndham Thiessen. We play tunes and songs both original and from diverse sources. Watch us play here.
Gopher Broke – A trio playing Prairie Oldtime dance music with Mona Goodwin and Mark Gimby.
