6.....Brief musical history to present...when you got started in music, places you've played, media exposure, awards etc.

I learned a few chords from a fellow counselor at a "Y" camp and used the skill to impress girls at keg parties in college. I was approached to join a folk trio with absolutely no experience and very limited skills, but we managed because there weren't any other groups any better in the area (Southern Minnesota). By the end of our three year career we were pretty smooth, had developed some unique harmonies, and were playing every weekend somewhere in a 100 mile radius. We did all covers and traditional stuff. Following college graduation I played for personal enjoyment and relaxation. In the service I sang the Draft Dodger Rag (a Chad Mitchell tune) at a party for senior officers. They laughed a lot, but none spoke to me afterward.

I began writing songs during my first divorce, not necessarily sad stuff, but more to relieve the boredom of living alone. I do instrumentals as well as vocals.
