ABOUT

I am a performance / video artist with Mischief La-Bas in Glasgow. I make and play instruments, ranging from Canjos and CBGs to Whamola, Theremin and Electric Washboard. I have made lots of videos, using my HD cameras and editing equipment.
I specialise in open tunings, using Cigar Box Guitars, sometimes playing with a slide, picking, or playing clawhammer, in the style of Ani DiFranco. I currently play with Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5. I have also played banjo and mandolin with a number of groups including Scunner, The Plimptons, Folkwind, Tribuke, Black Abbath and Dr, Bru & The Cydermen. - I would like an opportunity to play more bizarre instruments, such as the Whamola, Theremin and Washboard with gig-ing bands.
