CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Big Song Music House, May Music

Tonight, April 30th at 7pm, I will be playing music with 
Doug Hamilton at the Oxford Community Arts Center
A memorial concert for Doug's 15 year old daughter Kathryn who passed away on March 11, this year. We are raising funds to help purchase a Grand Piano for Talawanda High School in memory of Kathryn.  Kathryn Anne Hamilton was a talented athlete, musician, and creative artist, she had a big heart and a compassion for people.  Kathryn excelled in school and loved math and technology, and dreamed of becoming a race car engineer. She was the daughter of Barbara Smyth Hamilton, a big sister to Ethan Hamilton, a friend to her peers, and a bright spirit to everyone she met.
