Acoustic Guitar

I’m a fourth-generation instrumentalist and have been playing acoustic guitar for almost 40 years. Mired in the singer-songwriter/southern rock era of the seventies, I leave the electric stuff to Gary.

My involvement in music ministry began almost thirty years ago when I returned to the Catholic Church, after many years spiritually adrift. It was music ministry that drew me back to God and helped renew and strengthen my faith. It is music that continues to provide guidance and purpose to my life. My hope is that in some small way my involvement in BSD might do the same for someone else. What more could we aspire to than to be an instrument of God’s love, hope and peace?
