I’ve played in bands all my life – from Folk-Rock to Reggae, R’n’B to Indie. It’s a great antidote to the solitary, home-based business of writing. (Gloriously lo-fi evidence here on you tube, with long-standing pals The Chalfonts.)

Most recently I have been gigging with ‘Daring Adventures’. We play our own versions of the music of Fairport Convention and Richard Thompson, plus a few others we just enjoy doing. Please visit our website at if this sounds like your cup of tea. There are sound cloud excerpts and information about forthcoming gigs.

Sound Check
Sound check with ‘Saltflat’, Wolverhampton Arts Centre. (Eye patch result of wonky retina, rather than desperate attempt to look more rock and roll.)
