I currently live and work about two and half hours drive from my birthplace and family farm. It's in the mountains between Livingston and Jamestown, Tennessee. I suppose if I lived in a major metropolitan area of some uban center I would be much nearer to the arts and culture that make what I do possible. On the other hand, I sometimes think that living in a remote area is advantageous to my creativity. Here, I am well insulated from any inertia created from the pressures of any professional or social cliques. As a result, my source of business is spread far and wide and not dependent upon my location or the nexus surrounding one group or institution. It's a great excuse to travel to these places, learn new things and make new friends, yet always returning to my what I am building here on the western escarpment of the Appalachian Plateau. It's not the most accessible place to live and work, nor is it very spacious at the moment, but I am continually working bit by bit to make it a meaningful place to live, work and visit.
With that said, we love to have visitors and will be very gracious hosts to those willing to travel out here to see what I have going on, try some guitars and talk shop. If you are interested in visiting then please don't hesitate in contacting me here and we'll find a time to prepare for your visit.
