About Slim

For over 40 years, Slim has performed at schools, festivals, hoedowns and throwdowns all over North America and around the world. Considered a self-taught multi-instrumentalist, storyteller and barn dance caller, Slim learned a little bit from everyone he met as he traveled around country and around the world. His greatest joy is sharing the music and dances of America and the world with children and adults.

Slim has had the privilege of performing with Pete Seeger & Tao Rodriegez, Ola Belle Reed & Family, John Jackson, Patsy Montana, Blind Rev. Pearly Brown, Ella Jenkins, Keter Betts, Jean Ritchie, John "Kinderman" Taylor, Ralph Lee Smith, Guy Davis and numerous other musicians at festivals, conferences, hoedowns, house concerts and street corners.
