- Type: People Who Play
I've been a mandolin player for a long time playing a mix of blues, jazz, folk, bluegrass, rock, whatever! I've gigged all over the place including river boats on the Thames, cross channel ferries, bluegrass and folk festivals, posh hotels, seedy bars and European nightclubs! I've had the pleasure of playing with some great musicians including Simon Mayor, John Renbourn, Peter Rowan, John Etheridge, John James, the late Jo Anne Kelly, Paul Downes, amongst many others. I've supported and shared the stage with Paul Jones and Dave Kelly (of 'The Blues Band'), Ralph McTell, Wizz Jones, Davey Graham, Show of Hands, and taught mandolin workshops at Simon Mayor's Mandolin Day. I've contributed to three cd complilations of mandolin music released in the USA as well as releasing a solo cd 'Bluemando' in 2003 and a cd 'Hardcorn' with the Bluegrass Flyers in 2006 - both on Belmando Records and available through itunes and Amazon.
