Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Acoustic Guitar.


Acoustic Guitarist (Finger / Flat Picking and Lead Styles).
Fretless Bass Player.

The tracks herein: I only played the acoustic fingerstyle & lead in the background.

Don't sing much... (willing to do backing vocals for very patient people).

Lancashire based ~ Will travel...


Looking to form a Duo (or join a Band) with modern Folk feel in the English Tradition. For Gigging and Recording. If you're a Singer / Song writer / Guitarist he'll be very interested in hearing from you.
Mostly interested in Arrangement he also writes his own material. Willing to travel reasonable distances to rehearse.

Nice guy and he's the first to admit that he's a limited musician who knows a few tricks. He does what he does.

Experience is long and varied. John Peel Sessions for the BBC. Radio Lancashire and various recordings. Gigging regularly from the early eighties until he quit in the mid nineties. He's spent the last year or so re-equipping and getting back into shape as a guitarist and bass player.

Desperate to start performing again, you'll find him: enthusiastic, hard-working and generous with his time.
