After celebrating my 29th Anniversary on 'the Back Porch' on Father's Day 2015 it struck me.. I've been there for almost half my lifetime....returning home for 2 weeks at a stretch to raise my family and work as a heavy equipment operator the rest of the time. Living in the country near the Middlebury area keeps me grounded in the simplistic style I try to convey with the music I share. I've thoroughly enjoyed the many years of bringing the music to our listeners and meeting many of them in the most unexpected places and times. The continued arrival of fresh new music from many artists brings me joy especially when I can share it with you. Over the years my musical tastes have changed somewhat but I try to remain true to the acoustic sounds one might expect to hear from friends sitting around on a back porch with plenty of instruments nearby.
