— Recordings

Over the past twenty years, I've cut tracks on a dozen or more recordings, from vinyl 45's to CD's. These, to the best of my knowledge, are what are available and where to get them.

With Anne Price
Remember Me (2005 – CD only); My newest effort, all acoustic and largely traditional; I back Anne's lovely voice with concertina, mandolin, Dobro, harmonica, banjo and guitar – Rambles on-line magazine calls it a "great choice" and says I "play with skill and subtlety." Available from Anne's website or CD Baby.
