Welcome!  This is the web hub of Raphael McGregor; steel player, composer, arranger, and educator. In brief, I play lap steel for anyone who asks me to, and sometimes for myself. I also am the co-founder of the Steel Guitar Unconvention, a festival honoring the wide world of steel guitar music currently in its 3rd year. Check on Youtube, Facebook, and of course, one of my live shows for more.
