Boyd F., Acoustic & Electric Guitar  
Boyd started playing and learning guitar at age 12. He loves playing fingerstyle guitar with influences from 30's acoustic blues players such as Blind Boy Fuller and Gary Davis to modern players like Leo Kottke and Phill Keagy. He started his guitar education with the local great Bob Balsley and continued with Mike Irish at UWSP and Don Linke at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Milwaukee. Boyd has performed in bands ranging from off-broadway musicals to rock and roll and from bluegrass to jazz. He spends a lot of time writing original music and enjoys the challenge and joy guitars bring to life.
