Traditional and Modern, Originals and Standards
I recently made the decision to "do more" with my music, seeking to play at a wider variety of venues, for more people, and working with promoters and producers for the first time. I welcome anyone who is interested in having me play anywhere, and as mydetails, I still will try to continue to be available to everyone.
This page lists the information and resources for booking, promoting, and publicizing in a clear and simple format, with direct links to specific resources within my extensive website.
Though I maintain the highest standards of craftmanship and professionalism
I still maintain a personal and informal attitude

A short description suitable for a press release or program guide.
I produced a video, "Introducting The Electric Hammered Dulcimer", showing what I did to and with the traditional hammered dulcimer, developing both a modern style of playing and the 5 octave electric solid-body. I made a full 10 minute version, then cut it down to a 7.5 minute version and a 5 minute version, with progressively less background, details, and demonstration. They are available both within my webjournal as downloadable files and on YouTube as smaller-sized screen streaming versions.Full length, ten minute version: 1st Cutting, 7.5 minute version: Final cutting, 5 minute version: Not complete

I have not tried to collect reviews or recomendations, though I suppose I will as time goes on. I have collected a few, and more important to me, a collection of responses from the audience, written in an open comment book left out at performances, and also poems and even drawings and paintings, inpired by my music.
The official reviews, still uncollected as yet, so an empty page so far!
I gathered these mostly for my educational programs, though I did get one from the Alaska State Fair
These are cool, I have read them at times when I wondered why I live this life
Interestingly enough, people also responded by writing poems about me, as well as drawings and paintings.
