Ted hails from Northfield, MN originally. After having taken lessons on piano, flute, recorder and clarinet, he settled on guitar at the age of 10. Maybe it was because his parents said he wouldn't stick with it like clarinet? Instead, he's been playing ever since and opened a guitar store, Vig Guitars, in Saint Paul, MN with his wife Angie in 2014. Playing in various bands both in the Northfield area and the Twin Cities since the 90s, Ted has developed his own voice in music. He also plays bass and enjoys the different perspective it gives within the song. Music is good for the soul. There's something to learn from all genres.
