I am the 2015 Walnut Valley National Mountain Dulcimer Champion and 2000 Oklahoma State Champion. I first discovered the wonderful world of dulcimers at a young age, going on family trips to places like Eureka Springs. Around age 14, I was given the opportunity to learn to play by attending the local dulcimer club (Indian Territory Dulcimer Celebration) with my Grandfather, then would go on to take personal lessons from Steve Mayfield. I developed an appreciation for traditional dulcimer, fiddle, and Celtic tunes. I also came to blend my dulcimer techniques with an existing love of classic rock, namely The Beatles.
