I play banjo, 12 & 6 string guitar (plus oddments - below). I play broadly folk-ish/acoustic . I write songs; can sing a bit. Recording skills a bit basic . . . Currently working with singer (Lena: see her profile - via "connections" left of screen). Nb: nearly all the audio files here are mine. Only one of our joint songs here, watch this space!). Bass player joining us soon. We would love to find one or two more collaborators for a band, and develop original material besides covers. Happy to see where it goes, for the joy of music. Would love to find piano/keyboards; bellows-ist, fiddler, percussionist - but all enquiries welcome. Creativity, imagination zest and openness are sought; skill level is less important.
