I am from southern Ontario, where I played semi-professionally on the autoharp, banjo, and mountain dulcimer - performing songs from Appalachia. Currently playing instrumental old time fiddle tunes and melodies on banjo and dulcimer, with roots in Appalachia. Looking for an acoustic flat-picker and/or fiddle player to back me up and do lead breaks.
