I grew up in Massachusetts and started playing violin when I turned 8. My mentor and instructor was a tough but kind man who played for the Boston Pops. After learning chamber, string quartet and orchestra music from him I moved on to Irish and Bluegrass music. Country music, Bluegrass and Blues agreed with me so away I went. I have jammed with many great musicians over the years but never joined a band. Then Steve came along and gave me a shot. I enjoy playing with the Rusty Rocker professionals and I am still learning new songs. Music is my calling and the Rusty Rockers make it feel like home.
