I am a Northumberland based singer/songwriter guitarist currently resuming solo gigs having played regularly with Newcastle’s Tenth Avenue Band at festivals in England, Ireland and Germany until the summer of 2012.
I have two albums of songs, ‘Dancing with Shadows’ – produced by Rick Kemp (Steeleye Span’s Bass man) in 2001 and ‘Rough Around the Edges’ – 2008. They can probably be described as being in the contemporary folk genre.
I have played Maddy Priors’s Stepping Stones Festival for the last four years, Prudhoe Community Arts festival, the Hadrian’s Wall of Sound, the Corbridge Festival, beer and wine festivals, Music on the Marr, Woolfest in the Lake District, the Haydon Bridge Festival, Redefest. the Alnwick International Music Festival Broadstairs folk week. Baafest, Roots North and the Allen Valleys folk festival
At many of these festivals I have also compered some of the stages and delivered some very successful ukulele workshops.
I am interested in playing and running workshops at festivals during the coming year.
