I was inspired to play the resonator guitar by watching a Dobro* player during a jam session. He brought me a long way with the instrument and through the recent years we have become good friends. To him I owe a great deal of gratitude and thanks. I have played with several local Bluegrass groups which included Blackwater Run, Peach Mountain Boys and others. My influences include, Jerry Douglas, Rob Ickes, Ferrel Stowe, Tim Jackson , and of course my good friend, Bill Mitchell along with others.
