Jeff Jarvi/dobro, banjola, vocals, songwriter
Music has always been a part of my life, listening and playing.
I started my musical transition 5 years ago with banjo lessons. I met Max and Steve and we developed a musical chemistry to form Old Brown Coat. I now write, compose and play dobro, banjola, and guitar.
harmonica, vocals, songwriter
I started my love of music at a young age and got my first guitar at age 13. This started my lifelong goal to "start a band". I joined Jeff and Steve last year on this musical journey. I write music inspired by life experiences. I play guitar and harmonica.
I had minimal exposure to music while growing up. As retirement approached, my desire to learn an instrument increased. Now six years later, working with many great teachers, I play multiple instruments, host music groups, and compose music. I have enjoyed Old Brown Coat's music and look forward to my journey with Max and Jeff.
