I play a busy schedule on the Olympic Peninsula. Venues include local restaurants and bars, festivals, farmers markets, casinos, and other area events and private parties.

COVID-19 Update (July 2020): All of the information here about regular performances is of course obsolete, as we wait out the plague. I have played only once since 11 March, and that was to an empty house. I have no current plans for other events. I am not currently doing any livestreaming, despite the temptation. I'm instead using this time for a variety of long-deferred projects. I'll post more information when the situation changes.

Note: See my venues page for location details.

Note: The following schedule is more or less correct, but I’m not always prompt about updating this site. My Facebook page tends to list special events; also check the print edition of the Peninsula Daily News in the Arts section on Friday as well as the PT Leader (Jefferson County only). The most reliable schedule is in my email calendar, sent out roughly once a month: Click here to send me an email to be added to my calendar list.

Solo classical and jazz guitar

  • Every Monday from 5:00-9:00 at Alchemy ( – 842 Washington St, Port Townsend – 360.385.5225). Alchemy is a wonderful romantic restaurant in Port Townsend, next to the Galatea fountain at the bottom of the steps to Uptown – near the Rose Theater.

  • Frequent nights at Ajax Cafe ( – 21 N. Water Street in Port Hadlock), both as a soloist and with duos. My current Ajax schedule includes the fourth Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday each month, from 5-9.

  • Various other area locations; see my venues page for details.
