Greg and Instruments

Greg performs an eclectic mix of carefully chosen Irish, traditional and contemporary folk, Broadway, bluegrass, and original music. His repertoire includes original works, old coal mining songs, whaling songs, contemporary and traditional topical songs, and children's songs, to name just a few. His diverse performances have included a private performance for the Hungarian Presidential Cabinet, and performances at the US Olympic Canoeing and Kayaking Trials, the Rocky Gap Country Bluegrass Festival, the Garrett Lakes Arts Festival, numerous school performances, and a performance with the prestigious modern dance company Dance Alloy of Pittsburgh celebrating the centennial of Frostburg State University.

A finger style guitar player who has played guitar nearly his entire life, Greg plays both 6 and 12 string guitars, and open tunings on the 12 string guitar are a particular specialty of his.

He also placed second or third place five years in a row at the banjo competitions held in Friendsville, MD. His banjo style is a unique combination of traditional bluegrass, old-timey, melodic, and contemporary styles. He has even been known to let a Joni Mitchell or Beatles tune or two slip out on the banjo!
