ABOUT

I am a professional violinist seeking musicians for a variety of ensembles: would love to set up groups of like minded muso's for fun initially, hopefully leading to gigs and recordings:-) Could include strings for quartet/quintet, modern instrumentalists for a world music/Jazz/Funk inspired band or guitar, bass, mandolin, and any other trad instruments for accoustic folk band.

Influences

World music, especially Latin and African. Really enjoy listening to the Afro Cuban All Stars, Santana, Johnny Clegg and samba, rumba, batucada, tango. Love the classical Impressionists and new music. Folk: recently re-found folk, although I grew up on the likes of, Dylan, Mama's and Papas, Simon and Garfunkle, Donovon, Steeleye Span, Jefferson Airplane, Lindisfarne. Would love to combine the sounds of: Nick Drake, Goldfrapp, Kate Rusby, Massive Attack and the Fleet Foxes with a group of like minded muso's.
