Hanging out with the great Andy McKee!
The Legendary Tommy Emmanuel!
In July 2017, I had the good fortune of attending Legendary guitarist, Tommy Emmanuel's camp in beautiful Pacific Grove, California. My mentor and friend, Andy McKee was also an instructor at this camp and it was great to be able to spend one-on-one time with Andy.
On a couple of different occasions, students attending this camp had the privilege of performing on stage with Tommy. There were so many students in attendance, that I didn't sign up soon enough to take advantage of that great opportunity, however, a fellow student and friend named Annette, shared her time slot with Tommy, with me. I played along with them briefly, then went off on a tangent playing Thunderstruck. It was another great moment in my life that I will never forget!

TRACE BUNDY'S visit to Blue Ridge, Georgia~ 2015 and 2016
It was a dream come true to have Trace Bundy come to my home town of Blue Ridge, Georgia, not once, but twice, to perform a benefit concert for the Dakota's Dream Foundation. The cherry on top was that I was the opener for both concerts!
Each visit provided Trace some much needed R&R where we were able to spend some time together site-seeing, jamming and, of course, eating!
Below are some of the highlights!!

Me and the great Tommy Emmanuel!
In August 2016, I had the privilege of attending Andy McKee's Musicarium in the beautiful catskills of New York. Andy was joined by fellow acoustic guitar legends Preston Reed, Thomas Leeb and Craig D'Andrea.
The last night of the camp, I had the honor and privilege of performing on stage with the great Preston Reed. We performed his iconic song "Ladies Night". Check it out below!
