Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Reno McCormick can be seen performing at various venues around the Verde Valley and Northern Arizona.

Having played for years in bluegrass and country groups, lately he specializes in helping other people sound their best.

He has spent many nights recently at the Blazin' M Ranch in Cottonwood, playing fiddle, guitar and banjo and singing with the Blazin' M Cowboys.

He can be seen playing bluegrass at the Wine Loft and other venues in Flagstaff, playing dobro, fiddle and banjo with the Mars Hillbillys.

This fall he appeared singing and playing guitar with his wife Sheila on bass at the Pickin' in the Pines bluegrass festival in Flagstaff and at the Prescott Folk Festival.

Reno also conducted a Master Class in flatpicking guitar at the Flagstaff festival.

You might catch him at one of the local open mics where in addition to singing some songs, he's often asked to back up other musicians, adapting his guitar leads to other styles of music.

Reno has been playing guitar since he was a teenager. Now in his 60s, he continues the lifelong pursuit of mastering his instrument and progressing in his abilities on all the various instruments he plays.

For several years, Reno operated a music store in Camp Verde.

He continues to give lessons on guitar, banjo, fiddle and dobro, helping others to catch the music bug.

Upcoming engagements:

• Nov. 16 - Blazin' M Ranch, Cottonwood, Benefit for Bill Bassett

• Nov. 14 & 28 - The Wine Loft, Flagstaff, with the Mars Hillbillies
