American musician. Although he plays many instruments, he is perhaps best known for the sounds he evokes from the 12-string acoustic guitar.
The fourth of six children born to teachers, Reid grew up in the Washington, DC area. At age 14, he began playing guitar and writing music. His style has always been eclectic and ranged in his teens from rock to traditional and folk. He fell in love with the sounds of bluegrass.
His parents stressed education and in 1971 he enrolled at the University of Maryland to study abstract mathematics and French. After graduation magna cum laude in 1974, he spent the summer attending bluegrass festivals and concerts and playing music. After a few weeks of graduate school in the fall, he made his choice to follow his heart. Learning additional instruments he began teaching music. He moved to New England and began playing on the circuit.
Reid has recorded 17 albums since 1989 and has become a national presence on the music scene.
