Soon after, he met his future wife, Charmaine Slaven, and they formed the duo, Squirrel Butter. Charlie plays banjo in clawhammer and finger picking styles with great skill, creativity, and rhythm. His love of old-time, bluegrass, country, blues, and jazz inspire both his playing and avid songwriting.
