"bringing Traditional music to life with guitar work that rings in the hall like the bells of Rhymney...singing and harmonies filled with subtle voices of the past combined with a sultry presence...a fascinating mix of Celtic, American and English Folk…a great fondness for Pentangle and Bert Jansch." – David Stafford, KKUP
"one of my favorite Celtic genre-bending local artists" -- Tony Becker, AmeriCeltic
Following the 2012 run of my trio Bright Side Band, I reunited with long-time collaborator and Grammy-credentialed fiddler Cal Keaoola. 'Hardly Strictly Trad.' continues this signature format and sound -- fingerstyle guitar & violin/fiddle with male/female vocal harmonies applied to mostly Traditional celtic/folk/blues repertoire, plus original instrumentals infused with a touch of jazz. Now with English singer Erica Hockett taking over the lead vocalist chair.
