Wayne became interested in playing music when he met his wife to be and her brother Barry Calthorpe, who entertained at house parties with their parents. In the early seventies Wayne purchased a bass guitar which he enjoyed playing very much and this led to him joining The Kingston District Old Time Fiddlers. Wayne played most of the local senior citizen homes and eventually became the groups co-ordinator for three years. Wayne continues to play for open mics and jams in his area. Wayne also plays harmonica and dulcimer.
