A river runs through it as they say. Much of the material is inspired by The Hudson River and other waterways throughout the United States. There is a bit of bluegrass, some folk, jazz, blues, and Appalachian stylings thrown in to the mix. The strumstick that I play is a hybrid of a mountain dulcimer and a banjo. Note - Cripple Creek Medley (Cripple Creek, Oh Sussana, and Yankee Doodle) is traditional, arranged by Steve Kelman.
