Maryland and West Virginia
Nancy and I divide our time between Olney, Maryland and Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. This area, with the Appalachian Mountains and Chesapeake Bay, is a deep source of inspiration for my music. The Morgan County page has a sample of my WV projects, links to some of our creative friends in the Berkeley Springs area, and a video about our farmhouse.
