"...I take delight in the juice of the barley, courtin' pretty women in the morning so early..." - "Whiskey in the Jar" Keats couldn't have penned it more poetically. I'm a Columbus, Ohio husband, father and citizen. I practice string band sounds from the ridges of Pocahontas County, West Virginia, the vortex of the ancient drone. My daily work involves community-building, participatory democracy and ego-dissolving. Join us?
