Juggling Classes

I love playing music with Denise. We have been playing lots of Irish music lately.

Concertina player check out the new CD and the gigs coming up.

Here is a picture of me juggling to loosen up before playing guitar in Holland.

Here are some events I have and will play:

 Bands I play in and people I play with

Jubilee - Performing since 1982, Jubilee includes top-notch fiddler Shonti Elder from Wasilla, Alaska, and occasionally flutist Elsa Aegerter. We specialize in traditional dance music, and often play for square/contra dances put on by Dancing Bears. We also play at weddings, parties and festivals. We've produced one recording as a group, "A Welcome Sound."

Anchor Steam -
Is not currently gigging. They had great musicians with busy lives. The members included Patty Hamre, bass; Mike Richardson, fiddle; Denise Martin, dulcimer & concertina; Dave Hamre, mandolin; Jim Kerr, guitar & John Michaud, banjo.

Amanda Kerr - is my favorite fiddler and daugther. And upon lucky occasion I am honored to accompany her fiddling with my guitar.

All info, and a mail-in order form is on Denise's site: Saturday Sensation, Christmas in the Air, A Welcome Sound, One Moment Forever. They are all locally-produced in Anchorage and include many of my on original compositions, including:Aliens/On Parade;; Bear Paw Ramble; Tub Reel; Scarecrow ; The Jolly Punk Rocker (jig and reel); and Walking to China
We Love Theme Parties

If you need live music with a specific theme, such as Christmas, Irish, Renaissance, or Alaskan Sourdough, we can dress the part. Our repertoire with its variety of styles can add hours of festive music to any event. And I cand juggle too.
