ABOUT

I started a rocky folk band in 1980 and left after 13 years.That band carried on without me and only disbanded recently after 40 years! I took time out to raise the kids but carried on with the very occasional acoustic set locally. I just didn't have the time or the inclination to get involved in a band for the next 17 years. However, in 2010 I was asked to put a blues and classic rock band together for a charity gig in my local pub. So I called round to find who was up for it. That band went on for a couple of years before a couple of members moved out of the area. But I'd got the bug back and since then I have been in various adhoc combinations for specific gigs. In January this year I was asked to play bass. I started learning the specific songs then lockdown stopped the project. I've been practising regularly to backing tracks building up my repertoire but I don't have a set list to work on so I don't want to waste time learning tracks I might never use. So, if you need a bass player and you have a rocky, bluesy set list for me to learn, I might be your man. I can also play acoustic 6 and 12 string, rhythm and finger picking, a bit of 6 string banjo, mandolin.
