"Acoustic guitar sampler"
"Molly`s Party"
"Bremer Konzertburo"

Sessionwork with Hannes Wader ( including 2 live CDs), Werner Laemmerhirt, Ray Austin, Friedemann, Piefke, Libby Goines Lilienthal, Tinsmith, Jasmine and the Fury Brothers amongst others, which resulted in over 20 albums and CDs.
One of these, "Acoustic Guitar Sampler" led to the instrumental "das Loch in der Banana" (which translates as "the Hole in the Banana") being used as the call sign of a national German TV station for a period of about ten years, becoming immensely popular as an "etude" for aspiring acoustic guitarists, the subject of a "how to..." book, and famous as the most sought after sheet-music with a ridiculous name, ....... Aah, fame.....

Concerthalls, festivals, clubs, radio ,TV, studios, cafes, marketplaces, streetcorners, trains,
a police-station and a german army barracks. There are not many places I have not played,
including in the same year, the middle of an anti-war demonstration and the luxury ship QE II .

"The Prairie Home Companion",
"Fresh Air"
and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival
are some of the more substantial gigs.

the Castle of Dubrovnic, Yugoslavia,
the famous Bazaar in Istanbul,
the steps of the Monkey Temple in Nepal
or sitting on the roof of the last car on a train snaking its way through the Mexican desert.
It just goes to show, music is the language of the soul and is universal.
