I play mandolin, octave mandolin, acoustic and electric guitars, whistles and English concertina.

My main gigging interest is the 'amazingly lively' ceilidh / hoedown band Doctor's Orders.

2013 saw me doing some gigs and an album project with American songwriter Mark Leif Kahal.  Final rehearsals were in Morrocco, hence the orange tree.
The album Dusty Roads In A Rear View Mirror featured musicians from Austin, Texas and Nashville, with just me to fly the Union Jack.
  A favourite pastime, though I have less time for it now:
The Country Counts, which includes erstwhile musical partner Sue Hudson along with Alan Prosser of the Oyster Band and Chris Wood of the English Acoustic Collective.
