In 1990 he co-founded the Acousticats with long-time musical cohort Phil Salazar, doing double duty on guitar and mandolin before leaving the group in 1992.

In addition to his five year musical partnership with Luis Moreno, which showcases his formidable mandolin skills, he has since 1993 been guitarist and resident songwriter for Santa Barbara's renowned "beyond Bluegrass" ensemble, the Cache Valley Drifters.

Luis Moreno

In December of 1973 Luis left L.A. traveling to San Juan Bautista, California to join El Teatro Campesino (The Farmworkers' Theatre). Under the tutelage of Daniel Valdez, David Silva, and Grancisco Gonzales, Luis developed an appreciation and understanding of the wide varieties of Mexican music. Toward the end of his tenure in San Juan Bautista, he met guitarist Barrett Nelson.

Luis began his musical association with Mike Mullins after moving to Santa Barbara in 1987, while working on Una Pastorela, a Shepherd's Play performed at The Presidio Chapel.

Luis is currently recording a collection of songs from the Mission and Rancho periods of Early California in collaboration with Elizabeth Erro Hvolboll.
