Hi my name is Helen and I've been playing upright bass for about six years. I play in a local community orchestra which is mainly made up of local orchestra directors and teachers. I listen to a lot of classical music, country, and post punk/indie/alternative as well as everything else. I'm really interested in starting a folk punk band with assorted string instruments. Rabbath was in my town last month and I completely missed his performance. It was heartbreaking. Just wanted to say hi. I don't know many other upright bass players and I thought it would be nice to be part of this community.
