Loren plays folk songs, bluegrass, and fiddle tunes using flat picking, fingerstyle, and rhythm techniques. He is a natural teacher with plenty of patience and encouragement for students of all ages, interests, and abilities.
An avid learner, he has attended the Augusta Heritage Center’s summer old-time and bluegrass camps for several years, and studied with world-class artists Joe Newberry, Tyler Grant and Russ Barenberg, and local fingerstyle master Doug Rainoff.
He has performed for several weddings and gigs at Sully Plantation, Colvin Run Mill, and Ireland’s Four Provinces with a family bluegrass band. Loren has coordinated and hosted several open mic shows around Warrenton over the years, including a current virtual open mic that began during the 2020 virus pandemic and lockdown.
