I like to listen to music a lot as well. I like most types of folk music (especially Celtic), country, new age, jazz, old rock-and-roll, and even some classical. Some of my current favorite musical artists include Silly Wizard (and any other group involving this band's members), Dixie Dregs (mostly Steve Morse), Kristina Olsen, Garnet Rogers (and the late Stan Rogers), the Judds, Dwight Yokum, Stanley Jordan, Stephan Grapelli, Dave Grisman, Pat Donahue, the Modern Jazz Quartet, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Roy Bookbinder, ZZ Top, Rolling Stones, Triona Ni Dhomnaill (and all the groups she performs in), Dexter Gordon, John McKutcheon (and anyone who plays the hammered dulcimer), George Shearing, Dire Straits, Bill Staines, Nancy Griffith, Jimi Hendrix, B.B. King (I named my computer after his guitar, lucille), Lui Collins and a lot of others who's names have slipped my mind!
The whole family is into Star Trek and all its variants. Here's an old picture of Meredyth and me with our friend KC (yes, we own uniforms). Pretty nerdy, huh?
