Please note: This is not a commercial site. I do not sell or appraise musical instruments. Please do not contact me to request that I identify and provide background information on a specific instrument in your possession and/or evaluate its worth. That's a job for an accredited professional appraiser, which I'm not. That said, I'll be glad to answer questions and discuss any subject I present here, so long as that one proviso is respected.

    "A master of the eclectic old-time styles" -- Citizen Kafka, NYC Radio Host

    "An inspiring performer, Shlomo's musical presentations combine years
    of research into folk traditions with a serious dose of zany-- and immediately
    infectious-- wit and warmth"
-- Rebecca "Becky" Miller, Folklorist, Musician,
    Assistant Professor of Music of the Americas (Hampshire College, MA),
