Freelance.  Strong classical, Celtic, and Appalachian Old-Time influences.  Experimenting with Jazz Manouche and Chop fiddle, experienced in theatre accompaniment/performance.  

I will play at your wedding or your jewelry store for $500.  Funerals are on the house.

I self-identify as a neo-traditional freestyle grunge fiddle artist.  Open to unexpected collaboration.

My experience is wide-ranging but highlights include a long stint with former celtic rock outfit Banshee's Wail ("One of Winnipeg's best live acts" - The Uniter), collaboration in the Reykjavík Arts Festival with Ragnheiður Harpa Leifsdóttir in the radio-play "Páfuglar Heimskautanna", guest accompaniment/stripping with the Dizzy Diddlin' Fragglebits burlesque syndicate, and busking around North America and Europe.  Plenty of recording experience.

Most recently I've worked with Logan McKillop on his coming album (which will be excellent!), guested with the infamous Trampoline, toured east with Raine Hamilton and west with Carey J. Buss as well as touring Iceland with my fellow fiddlers and intrepid travel companions "The Bad Hymns".  

Please hire me.
