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. I used to play guitar, fiddle and mandolin. 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 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!

I am no longer able to play real instruments because of my MS. I now make music with the help of friends and with virtual and sampled instruments in REAPER:
