About Me


connecting through music


Music, music, music, pretty much sums it up. I'm a singer/songwriter cellist/violinist and have some music online if you care to listen. http://wesswing.com/music

I've been on the road, playing concerts often arranged through couchsurfing for a few years now.


Expression through music.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Traveling and performing house concerts. We bring a cello, guitar, and a small amplifier, and hosto invite friends for an evening of music. Hoping to host more often now that I'm not on the road full time.


Couchsurfers are simply wonderful people! We have been so lucky to perform concerts all over the world while meeting such fantastic folks!
