Dave Kiphuth began playing banjo and guitar in 1962. Although his bluegrass roots run the deepest, his musical loves include many forms. Dave has a unique playing style that combines melodic lines with a driving rhythm in yet another approach to 3-finger banjo. He is a regular member of Cecil Abel’s Seacoast-based New England Bluegrass Band. When not making music, Dave is an acclaimed artist and illustrator.
