banjo, doghouse bass, mandolin, dobro and a brief encounter with the violin.
Played in 2 bluegrass bands, and was Smiley Bates basss player for 25 years.
Now retired I've finally fulfilled my life long dream..in May 2002 I completed my first 2 albums, "Stories Of Life" & "Pure Country" recorded in Oshawa, Ontario at Ambassador Studio.
In the summer of 2003, I completed 4 more albums. "Diamonds"
"Just A Closer Walk", "In The Key Of "C" Boys" & "My Tribute to Smiley Bates". All albums have been doing very well for me, especially in Newfoundland and in Australia.
I have songs that I have written, ready for an album of all my works wich should be done in May of 2004.
Many thanks to all who have supported me and my music.
