"Music has always been an interest of mine. At one time I had visions of working with Alan Lomax, but for a variety of reasons this never came to work out. Maybe, to some degree, what I am doing now, is a return to those days. My folks were talented violinists - my dad also played the banjo. I was never a talented musician, but from an early age I enjoyed listening. Since retiring I now have the chance to listen to, and record great, and varied Upper Valley music performance. I have also had the chance to meet area musicians. What an opportunity. How lucky am I. I go out, set up my stuff, and then sit back and listen to great stuff. I have been doing this since 2016, although way back in the 1960's I recorded traditional music in Sierra Leone when I was in the Peace Corps. Unfortunately, all those early recordings were stolen."
