SEEKINGBand to Join, Upright bass, Accordion.
I have plaed with a folk/rock band for over four years, alternating between fiddle and bass guitar. As this band has now ended, I am looking for opportunities to play fiddle or bass at other functions, depping for bands on either instrument. I would now be interested in playing bass or fiddle in a new band. I am enthusiastic and reliable, have great instruments and equipment and my own transport. I have played violin for many years, moving to folk fiddle about 12 years ago. I can quickly read/learn folk tunes in British and American styles.
I am also a versatile bassist (RGT Grade 8). Again, I play a wide range of styles. So contact me if you are stuck. I can help - even at short notice.
Happy to put fiddle track onto recordings too.
