      Installed here on 7-24-2005, the original text file discography was first installed in the UW-Parkside Music Archives on 9-06-1993.

      Comment: This multi-instrumentalist folk musician from Elmhurst, IL was, in 1963, a 19-year-old senior at York Community High School. Other than his first LP being listed in John Boothroyd's "Bluegrass LP" book, he has not been mentioned in any other of the folk or guitar literature I have seen. I feel his artistry should be documented somewhere, so here it is.
