I have free-lanced in the Baltimore-Washington area for forty-nine years. I play just about all styles, including light classical, traditional/international folk (including Klezmer,) bluegrass, Irish, swing and jazz. I lead jazz and swing instrumental duos and trios. For wedding ceremonies, I play violin or mandolin with optional guitar, cello or piano accompaniment. At the present time I am NOT leading string ensembles larger than a trio (e.g., string quartets.) When I am not leading small groups or soloing, I can frequently be found playing as a sideman in bluegrass groups and even a Gypsy jazz group. The audio clips included on this member profile page are of my light classical solo playing in addition to selected tracks (as indicated by an *) from my self-produced CD originally released in 1994: "A Dream of Peace." I just added a track I composed for the Fabrangen Fiddlers' album "American Chai," originally released in 1978, and now finally available on CD. It is "Avrum's Nigun" (Abram's tune) and is a good sample of the ethnic dance material I still perform.

Without Alan, my wedding day would not have been complete. The music he played helped to set the tone for my wedding day. He was very wonderful and easy to work with. I asked him to play a certain song as I walked down the aisle, which he did without a problem. I would truly recommend Alan for any event. I can not say enough praises about him.

What a great experience! Alan was great with communication and feedback. He offered us suggestions for our wedding ceremony music and arranged several songs that we wanted to hear but he didn't have in his repertoire. Alan was prepared and ready to go at ceremony time. It was like he had practiced with us the night before. Seamless. I would highly recommend Alan and whomever he brings to play with him. We have received so many compliments regarding his musical talents and that of his co-musician, Esther Haynes. Bravo to both!

Alan played the mandolin for our garden wedding ceremony. He has a wide range of music he can play and my guests were impressed with his ability. His mandolin-playing added a beautiful touch to the ceremony. I would highly recommend Alan for any event.
