Bluegrass Now Magazine calls him a “devastating weapon….Steve’s singing is akin to tornado activity. An unrestrained growl along the lines of John Lee Hooker meets Bill Monroe.” Steve is most well known as an upright bassist, but also performs and teaches on mandolin, guitar, and fiddle. He currently teaches at 317 Main St. Community Music Center in Yarmouth, Maine.
