Songwriting and playing at and/or running sessions, gigs, festivals, clubs and special projects – if you have nothing better to do, you can find out more about my musical life by following the website links below or checking out the photo gallery of happy memories.
For many years my musical home was the Bluebell Inn in Hempstead, in the rural north of Essex, without doubt one of the finest pubs in the world until Rod and Marian finally retired in 2015 – since April 2009 however my new haunt has been the incomparable Plough and Fleece in our adopted village of Horningsea in Cambridge, now a community pub owned and run by the punters. Weekly acoustic session every Thursday from around 8.30 – everyone welcome!
For the next 5 years or so I will taking the ‘Rolling On’ project on the road, visiting sessions and clubs throughout the UK, sharing the award wining Rolling On song on the way and reporting back on the health of community based folk-roots music. Check out the Rolling On page for more details.
