ABOUT

I am primarily a fiddle player, but also play lots of other instruments including piano, viola, mandolin, koboz, hurdy-gurdy, zither, dulcimer and others.

Bands I currently paly with are Aurora-Project, Guzalyas (Hungarian folk), Rogue Frequency and duo with Mike West in its early days.

I am interested in a wide range of music including rock, metal, Hungarian folk, British folk and classical. I particularly enjoy anything with lots of aggression and energy.

At the moment I am pretty busy with current projects as well as commitments outside of music, so not really looking at joining anything else. However always happy to hear from artists and willing to discuss - if I really like it I can possibly make room!
