A Little About me…

l to r - Me, Jeep White, David Owens & Bruce Roberts


I’m a 30+ year veteran of the music industry, multi-instrumentalist and have traveled coast to coast bringing my unique style of playing to a wide variety of audiences. I’ve performed at Bluegrass and Country music festivals all over the United States including the prestigious Boston Folk Festival. My career includes an 11 year stint with the nationally acclaimed group Southern Rail, over 25 years with South Carolina Heritage artist Roger Bellow, performances and recordings with country star David Ball, country music veterans Don Helms (who played with Hank Williams Sr.) and Gordon Terry, Jimmy Buchanan, Melba Montgomery, and others. I’m an award winning mandolinist and have been called “A wizard of the mandolin” by Virginia Public Radio. My recent collaboration, River Boy, with several other Charleston area musicians, has already been featured on North Carolina Public Radio and has gotten rave reviews. I can be seen regularly on my standing gig Tuesdays at Dunleavy’s Pub on Sullivan’s Island with “Bob Sachs and Friends.” Music starts at 7:30.
Southern Rail - Studio Break - Doobie Shea Studios - Roanoke VA

Doobie Shea Studios - Roanoke VA. This is during the recording of "Wasting My Time" the first Southern Rail CD I appeared on and an awesome that I still enjoy listening to. The band is Jim Muller - Guitar, Sharon Horovitch - Bass, Paul Muller - Banjo and of course me on Mandolin. Paul joined the band at my request. It was a time when 2 players had left. I auditioned at Paul's house and said I'd join if Paul would too. Wow was that a smart move. Paul, AKA BigFoot, is a great guy who influenced me a lot!
