ABOUT

I have enjoyed making music for many years. In the last six years having been playing with other people and want to do a lot more of that. (Slowly learning to record, so the sound files here are a bit old - I have probably got a bit better since). Vaguely hippy back-story. Musically not massively literate but can take on new chords, techniques as required. I play mostly folky and acoustic but like a broad range of music. I have written a few songs (many more unfinished!); can sing a bit and lead tho' happy just to play along, and see where it goes, just for the joy of music. Would love to find a singer, fiddler, accordion/melodeon - but all enquiries welcome.
