About

Hi there, I'm a double bassist, bass guitarist, mandolinist and acoustic guitarist. I'm based in Glasgow in the west of Scotland and am always looking for collaborators and musicians for tunes. My love is bluegrass music, whether traditional or more progressive. I co-run a bluegrass session on the last Monday of every month in Glasgow at Bar Gumbo. If you are in town check it out. Hope you enjoy.

    Hi, sorry that I've only seen this comment! It's in A here, the banjo capoed up 2. It's my dad on banjo, he's been playing bluegrass since the 1960's so it's kind of second nature to him, I guess. Thanks for the compliment !
