    As well as being an active photographer, mainly working in 35mm Reversal Film I was also active in the Folk Revival and a friend asked if I might post some images taken in that era?

    Nice. As a guitar player myself, I can appreciate the hard work and preparation that goes into getting up on stage before a crowd. I play in church most weekends, and enjoy it a lot.

    I was semi professional during the late 60's to the 80's fronting quite a few Old Timey and Bluegrass bands as well as touring the Folk Clubs. That all came to an end in the 80's when I suffered 4 strokes which incapacitated my left hand making playing all but impossible . In 2013 my old Dobro player and long time band partner suggested I might consider buying another guitar which I did and although I am not able to gig any more it somehow gives me a link back into the music and I have many contacts who I am back in touch with, at least, those who are still alive. My right hand is waiting for my my left hand to get into gear but I think it might have a long wait? Tony

    Ooooh, a Martin and an old Gibson. Sweet! I have a modern Gibson, which is also a nice guitar, but doesn't have quite the same resonance as the old models.

    The 50's D28 was the best guitar I had, Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, worth about 30K now

    Whoa!

    They are nice and sound great, but a Martin is pretty much out of my range these days. I dug pretty deep for the Gibson I bought a couple of years or so ago.
