Welcome to the site

Here you'll find details of my:


I am the Information Systems Co-ordinator for YMCA Downslink, based in Hove. I also took part in the 'Lodestar' series of concerts with Shirley Collins, singing, playing guitar, and hosting the evening. Gigs included Celtic Connections in Glasgow, Colston Hall in Bristol, Sage in Gateshead, Warwick Arts Centre, Liverpool Phil, London Barbican and Brighton Dome. We played sets, rather than the full shows, at the Cambridge Folk Festival, and the Green Man Festival, at The British Library, the Black Box in Belfast, and for Tradfest at St Michan's Church in Dublin. We played a set at Kunsthal, Charlottenborg - in Copenhagen - the Supersonic Festival in Birmingham, and the Boiler Shop in Newcastle. In January 2019 we played The Roundhouse in London.


I built and currently maintain this site. I also built, and now help to maintain, the official website for the singer, author and presenter Shirley Collins.
