I grew up attending concerts, festivals and music and dance camps because that’s what my parents were doing, mostly because my dad was playing in the folk band The Friends of Fiddler’s Green. It was probably inevitable that I’d have a musical streak to me. In this section, I’ll chronicle my various musical endeavors and provide some soundclips of jams gone-by.
