First gig with Jon Swift
I've been playing solo for a couple of years, but I've always thought that a bass player would add a lot. When I heard that Jon Swift, with whom I've picked formally and informally over the years, was interested in playing out more often, I jumped at the chance to work with him.
Jon shares my affection for the blusier side of bluegrass, and the bottom end carries a lot of weight. Our first effort was a success, and I'm looking forward to many more opportunities to play with him, including this Friday at Gallery 53 in Meriden.
I'm still with the Bristol Boys and other projects that keep me busy.
