About me:

I am a Singer/Songwriter, Guitar & Bass Guitarist, 5~String Banjo, Trombone & Autoharp Player, Plectrum Dulcimer, Keyboardist, Organist, Pianist, Drummer, Percussionist, Actor, and an Avid Life Horse Lover. I am the great nephew of the original "Moondog", Alan Freed! The man that coined the phrase "Rock & Roll" on radio WJW, out of Cleveland, who shared Rhythm & Blues black music to listeners on both sides of the spectrum. He was an Ohio native, hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, which is now, home of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame!! He married my grandmothers' eldest sister, Marjorie "Jackie" McCoy!
