Buehling developed a blend of African and Anglo-Celtic musical styles while performing on riverboats, minstrel stages, and under the big tops. He will present the music and humor of bygone times in his performance at Athens.

His repertoire includes rags, marches, gallops, jigs, reels and old-time songs.

Buehling currently resides in Fayetteville, Ark., where he teaches music privately.
