Keyboard, Piano, Background Singer.


I play fingerstyle guitar in folk and jazz styles, and sing in Appleby Stone, an acoustic group with a strong local following playing original music in concerts and private events.


We are looking for a pianist/keyboards player or guitarist who can sing harmony, occasional lead (alto or soprano) and will contribute creatively towards new material.

I have many years experience performing in different kinds of venues, from concert halls and festivals to restaurants, bars and riverboats, and with many inspirational musicians.

Songwriting in collaboration with Catherine Kinsey has been a formative and wonderful experience, and my continued duo partnership with the fabulous Emma Stone is a joyful privilege.

As a producer I put on events at the Ale House in Colwall and am always interested in meeting original solo artists or groups who may wish to perform there. https://pindropevents.co.uk
