Band to Join.

ABOUT

Accomplished acoustic guitarist and pianist looking to join a gigging band (or band with intention to gig) in the leeds area. Would love to join a folk/indie/alternative group.
I have a home studio with some excellent equipment which I would love to put to good use with a band. It can also be used for (acoustic) rehearsals.
I write and record songs with my partner, but I am looking to join a band to get more live experience, meet people and have fun!
As well as acoustic guitar and piano, I can play ukulele and mandolin to some extent and bass guitar.
I am also fairly experienced on electric guitar, although dont currently own one.
I live in keighley, but happy to meet up anywhere in the Leeds area.
