About Me

I have searched the world for the fascinating  instruments that  created American music.


Turning this personal mission into educational programs took years of partnering with arts organizations like the Kennedy Center, DC, Wolf Trap, VA and the Teaching Artist Institute, MD.


Audiences of all ages leave my shows knowing more about how people use music to express their feelings in music using instruments from around the world.


Thousands of audience members have been entertained and educated by my shows.



What people are saying:



       “I can’t believe how much I learned about

       the roots of American Music from the

       Curtis Blues Show.


       He made the history come alive with his mastery of

       fascinating music instruments.

       He plays a Mule’s Jaw as expertly as the guitar.

       He made me laugh out loud many times.”
