Born in London way back when! Now
residing in the lovely Sussex village of Southwick right on
the south coast of England---only 4 miles west of Brighton
(which is directly south of London). I have been living here
in Sussex since 1985 and have got to know many musicians and
artistic people through my connections in the world of music---especially
Folk music. I am a full-time professional entertainer / musician
/ songwriter and my hobbies are wide and varied but mainly
centred around the world of Art and Music. I sing and play
acoustic guitars, dulcimer, keyboards and harmonicas and will
"have a go" at any instrument just for the fun of
I spend much of my time entertaining
the Elderly in Residential and Nursing Homes here in Sussex
and specialise in using many musical memories as a therapy
to bring as much pleasure to them as possible. Doing this
When I am not entertaining in that
format I find myself performing all styles of music---folk,
pop, blues and rock either solo or in a number of different
duos---in pubs, folk clubs, private functions or on regular
occasions abroad in Europe, mainly Denmark and Germany.
I have run several successful Folk Clubs in the Brighton and
Lewes area since coming here in 1985: "Noblefolk",
"Hanburyfolk" and "The Wizard Folk Club"
in Brighton. "Folk at The Elephant" in Lewes and
for 4+ years "The Harbour Sessions" here in Southwick
which ended on 1st March 2005. I spent over five years as
the Producer for the local folk program "Minstrels
Gallery" on BBC Radio Sussex in the late 1980s.
During those years I built up a vast network of contacts in
the Folk Music world down here in Sussex.
