Originally from Virginia Beach Va., Del moved to Dillon Colorado, and started playing guitar at the age of 36, while listening to the sounds of the Hot Rize Band. After hearing Hot Rise Del decided to start a bluegrass gospel band named the Gospel Bluegrass Group Faithful Calling. The next band Del decided to assemble was a band called Timberline Bluegrass. Timberline traveled the Colorado Bluegrass circuit and recorded that wonderful CD named Narrow Road on Hayholler Records. Being away from Virginia for years Del decided to move back to Virginia in 2010, and now lives in Chesapeake Virginia. When hearing the sounds of Salt Marsh, Del felt his bluegrass roots calling again and decded joined the Salt Marsh, this time playing the bass and singing lead and tenor. Salt Marsh is very happy to have Del picking with them now.
