I have been playing guitar for 13 years (following 7 years playing the 'cello). I am competent at many styles of electric and acoustic guitar playing. I started playing the tenor banjo and mandolin about 3 years ago when I joined a large band with too many guitarists (Cocos Lovers - www.myspace/cocoslovers). I have worked hard at developing my playing on these instruments and can play a range of styles from traditional Irish and English reels and jigs to bluegrass. My guitar and banjo playing is also influenced by North African music and instruments. I currently play and record regularly with Cocos Lovers and The Turncoat & The Hellfire Orchestra (www.myspace/theturncoat).
