Profile

Apart from a brief foray into the real world of work in the late 1970s,

which I found not to be altogether to my liking, I have made my living

playing music in the glorious world of acoustic folk music.

I have been in and out of various bands and duos,

but have been a solo performer most of the time - singer, guitarist and flute player.

Latest news is the release of my first full-length book, a memoir

based around Whitby Folk Week called "Around The Blooming Heather"
