Happy was smitten by American folk music as a teenager and began playing guitar and 5-string banjo. He was an active participant in the legendary Washington Square/Greenwich Village folk scene of the 1950s and ‘60s, and studied guitar with the famed blues master, Brownie McGhee. Over the past five decades he has performed extensively throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, and Japan, both as a soloist and as a member of various groups. His avid interest in traditional and contemporary music has brought him recognition as a performer, writer, editor, session musician, folklorist, teacher and recording artist.

As well as having written several music instruction books, Happy and his wife Jane run Homespun, featuring the largest catalog of music lessons on DVDs and CDs available anywhere. Happy's Website.
