I have loved music all my life, all types of music, except opera. 

My musical influences include folk, country, americana , cajun and zydeco.  

My favorite artists have been Gordon Lightfoot, Bob Dylan, John Prine, Willie Nelson, The Band , Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys, and The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

I was born in New York City and live in New Hampshire.
