audiences, strolling accordion or fiddle for your festival, background instrumental music for
your corporate gathering, cajun accordion and fiddle for a mardigras event, Irish tin whistle
and fiddle for celtic gigs, and more. I could just bring along all of my instruments and play
my favorite tunes, in many styles. See the Music Samples page 1.
