JOHN ROBERT WHITNEY
ABOUT JOHN ROBERT WHITNEY
I've been an active singer/songwriter and performing musician since my early teens. I'm a baritone vocalist with a decent falsetto range. I play guitar, piano, banjo, mandolin, cornet, mountain dulcimer, accordion, recorder, harmonica, autoharp, and a number of other instruments.
Musical styles and interests include folk, Celtic, country, Americana, jazz, blues, pop, alternative. Composition and recording tools include Forte, Sibelius, Band in a Box and Audacity. I retired from a nearly 40 year career with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (formerly the Soil Conservation Service). I continue to work part-time and gig regularly. I also enjoy photography and nearly daily strolls with my wife, Laura, through area parks and natural areas.
SONGWRITING AND PERFORMANCE SERVICES
SOLO, DUOS, SMALL ENSEMBLES
I perform regularly in a mix of solo, duos and small ensemble settings: house & garden parties, special occasions, holidays, background music, with or without vocals.
I'm happy to be a "side man" in live performances or on recordings. That includes both instrumental and vocal harmony options.
Would your next public event or organizational meeting benefit from an experienced public speaker and performer, potentially even with custom-written music for the event? Contact me to discuss possibilities and fees, particularly if you'd like environmental, social justice or empowerment and communication themes.
