Paul Race's Music Site Home Page
Coming from a family that loved all kinds of music, Paul learned

Coltrane, and Seeger. He also learned to play much of that music, on
guitar, banjo, and saxophone. Later, he learned to love and play the
music of Peter, Paul, and Mary, Buffy St. Marie, Cat Stevens, Chicago,
BS&T, Rich Mullins, Larry Norman, Second Chapter of Acts, Jim Croce,
CS&N, and many others.
