Diary

As well as occasional gigs, I'm involved in a number of other musical events and gatherings throughout the year - see the individual event description for details. Please check back regularly for updates.

If you'd like me to play at your event or gig, please use the contact page to get in touch.

IMPORTANT UPDATE (NOVEMBER 2021): Although live performance opportunities are gradually opening up again, I'm unable to accept any gig invitations in the near future as I'm recovering from an injury which affects my mobility (and, for the moment, my ability to play the guitar!). I'll update this page as and when the situation changes.
