Chris is a life-long student, performer and teacher of traditional, southern Appalachian heritage music. Born and raised in Virginia, Chris has been playing old-time, country blues, bluegrass and folk music since the late 1980s. His style is rooted firmly in tradition, his interpretation is authentic and he has the ability to connect with the audience with colorful stories (some even true). He has shared the stage with Dr. Ralph Stanley, sang with Mike Seeger and performs regularly at festivals and venues around his home in Southern California – solo and with his band Plow.
