About Me

Well the title button says About Me so what shall I tell you. I dont think there has been a time in my life when I havent been singing. Aged 16 I first heard the amazing voice of  Joan Baez I was so impressed I went straight out and bought a guitar, from then on I discovered Joni Mitchell, leonard Cohen,Tom Paxton & all the other wonderful singers of that era.

 

Then a good friend took me to a Folk Club & I discovered Traditional music and the rest as they say is history.

 

When I write my  own songs  they tend to reflect  whatever has grabbed my attention on the day maybe a line from a radio interview as in  Cheap Daily Life

(the plight of Dairy Farmers  this song will be on new CD)  Local legends  or people I know or have known  make good song subjects.(see Fisherman John on song lyrics page)And  the West Country in general  is very inspiring for songwriting.

 

I have supported Fairport Convention, The Albion Band,

Phil Beer, Ian Bruce,Bob Fox, Pete Coe,  St Agnes Fountain, Brass Monkey, Blazing Fiddles,

Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham, Sean Cannon  to name but a few.

 

I have  recorded 4 CD''s Shadows on the Water, Full Circle Round and Timeless.

CD number four "Nine Turns Of The Moon produced by the legendary Phil Beer is now out & selling very well
