Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone…

Joni Mitchell

I am a musician and songwriter, now concentrating on writing and recording since becoming disabled. As well as performing and recording solo, I have spent many years playing traditional music, especially for dancing. I have written music for many community projects and performed much of this in the theatre, in concert and on the radio. I used to play guitar, fiddle and mandolin, but my live music is now confined to singing backing vocals with the Living Archive Band.

I spent some time in teaching, but for the past twenty five years or so I was self-employed as a violin repairer. I was quite handy, really!

Info, streaming, downloads and CD orders for my own (pre-MS) music and bands to which I contributed are all available through my website:banner website3blogband on Bandcamp.

My new music can be heard on Soundcloud:

I am no longer able to play real instruments because of my MS. Instead I am composing and recording using virtual and sampled instruments in REAPER:
