Aside from my life as a guitar instructor,
and like that bumper sticker says, ....
be playing music"!
And so we do, Ellen & I, ... as much as
our lives as parents of five boys will allow. Based in Corvallis,

scene. Our genre of music would best be discribed as acoustic

We are currently working on three recording projects; a three

- "AN OLD VOLVO", a CD single by Tom & Ellen featured on NPR's
Car Talk with Click & Clack (show #113).
- "THE TOUCH", a CD by the two of us of all original Christian
tunes released 4/2000 to finance our cross country "Pass
The Hat Tour 2000".
THE LIVIN' ROOM", a solo CD of
