N:When I first met him, Fred played guitar and Strumstick (a small dulcimer).
N:Later he took up electric bass, and has been a great addition to many
N:musical endeavors, some of which I've had the pleasure to play in.
N:The people who knew him as a lobbyist in Washington probably had no
N:idea he was a musician and singer with his own recording studio and a
N:deep caring about how what he produced sounded.
